    If I bring my laptop to england and use fetch to pick up some files from a U.S. site, will I be able to do this without running into problems?

    Hi Murray,

    In general, yes, you should be able to do that - Fetch will work to connect to servers from wherever you are, as long as there's an Internet connection.

    However, sometimes hotel or other public Internet connections block FTP connections (they are firewalled to only allow access to very basic Internet services such as email and the web), so you might find in some locations that you cannot connect to any server with Fetch because of those restrictions. (This is true regardless of which country you're in.) Unfortunately in those cases there's nothing to be done except wait until you can connect from a different location.

    But most of the time, there shouldn't be a problem.
