    I have a client who uses fetch and we have an NT Server. He is having a problem that appears to have occured following the upgrade for the "Code Red" virus. He can log in to our FTP NT server OK but it can never complete the "getting file list" operation. Can you think of any reason for this or what things can I check?

    Thanks,
    Kerby

    I'd be interested to see the contents of the Fetch Transcript window after the client sees the problem. He can choose "Fetch Transcript" from the Window menu to reveal that window.

    Thanks,

    I've been having the same problem. I can log on, but don't get a directory listing. I'm using fetch under OS-X and trying to connect o my ISP's server.

    Using 'ls' and 'cd' FTP from terminal works fine.

    The transcript log follows...

    You might try unchecking "Use Internet Config" in the General section of Preferences, and "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" in the Firewall section of Preferences. Does that make any difference?

    Jim,

    that does seem to have done the trick. I've tried connecting a few times and accessing subdirectories with no apparent problem.

    Many thanks,

    Hywel. :)
