Fetch 5.7.3 for your Yahoo! file transfer needs by Jim Matthews

Yahoo! has announced that, as of the end of September, its small business customers will need to use FTP with TLS/SSL (a more secure variant of FTP). We applaud this move towards better security. Unfortunately, a change in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion has kept some Fetch 5.7 users from connecting to Yahoo! servers using FTP with TLS/SSL; instead they received a mysterious -9807 error. We are therefore very happy to today release Fetch 5.7.3, which fixes the -9807 error.

We also fixed a few other issues that our users have reported. The complete list of changes in 5.7.3 is as follows:

  • Fixed a crash connecting to some SFTP servers when the host key has changed
  • Fixed a problem with -9807 errors on FTP with TLS/SSL connections
  • Fixed a problem with MacBinary uploads to Rumpus and other servers with MacBinary support
  • Fixed a problem with mirror downloads not deleting stray files
  • Stopped invoking discrete graphics chip on newer MacBook Pros running Mountain Lion to conserve battery power

Fetch 5.7.3 is a free update if you purchased your Fetch license after January 28, 2009; otherwise an upgrade is $10, and a new license is $29.

Please download Fetch 5.7.3 from the Fetch Download page, or by choosing Check for Update… from the Fetch menu in an earlier version, and let us know what you think of the new release.

  • Is there even a possibility that you could have a version of Fetch ftps that works on Macs running system 9.2 ??

    Currently running ver3.03 but Yahoo does not work with it.

  • Hi,

    I’m sorry but no, we won’t be creating a version of Fetch with FTPS support for Mac OS 9.2. And unfortunately I’m not sure that anyone has written an FTPS client for that OS version. You might switch to a hosting provider that supports plain FTP, or to one that supports SFTP (in which case you would want to use MacSFTP).

  • I’ve been running Fetch 4.0.3 on 9.2.2 for years. I only transfer unsecured plain FTP, but it works fine. I haven’t tried anything fancier because it was not needed for my application.
