    When you use the Put command, change the setting of the "If a file already exists:" menu to "Replace existing file". Do not use "Pick a different name".

    When this menu is set to "Pick a different name", Fetch sends the "STOU" command to the server (asking the server to give your file a unique name to make sure it does not replace an existing file). Some servers do not support the "STOU" command, and give these errors as a result.

    Let us know if this does not fix the problem. Thanks,
