    Perhaps this isn't even possible with Fetch 4.0.3, but I have one new website I maintain that does not allow me TelNet access; I've been spoiled with other sites that do. If you could provide me (just once) with very detailed instructions, and an example on how to send UNIX commands (e.g., CHMOD), I'd really appreciate it. I can be taught, and I do better with actual examples. Thanks!

    The easy way to send CHMOD is to select the files or directories you want to change and choose "Set Permissions..." from the Remote menu, and check the appropriate boxes (they will be translated into an octal CHMOD code for you). The hard way is to choose "Send FTP Command..." from the Remote menu and type "SITE CHMOD filename code" (replacing filename and code with the name of the file to affect and the octal permissions code).

    What other commands do you need to use?
