    I tried to open my account and got a message FTP connection did not work - error occurred - POSIX error 51.
    I use Fetch version 5.3.1 on a MacBook Pro.
    Please advise what settings I need - this is a new computer since my previous iBook ...

    Hi Kim,

    We have also followed up with you via email.

    This error means there is a problem with the server, or with the address you are using to contact the server.

    You should contact the company or people who runs the server to have them look into the problem. If they say that there is not a problem with the server, verify your hostname, username, and password with them - it may have changed since you last tried to contact this server.

    Please let us know if you have further questions after talking to them.
