1) First off, Fetch (4.0.2) hasn't worked a darn since I got my new iMac. I can't upload or download 10 files without getting an error (misc. errors) and having to quit and restart Fetch. And I have the same problem using Dreamweaver FTP, which gives me the impression that the problem's with the OS. This happens with a number of Web servers -- so it's not the Web server. Any ideas?
2) When I download a Web site using WSFTP on my Win2k machine, and transfer the Web files to a Zip disk and then move the files to my iMac, the Mac OS changes all or many of the files to ALL-CAPS!!!??? Why???

Problems solved. I reformatted my Zip -- no file name problems.
It was suggested that I download an FTP app called Transmit. I did -- works great -- I downloaded nearly 100 files without a hitch. Fetch was my workhorse for years, but performed miserably in OSX -- I couldn't download 10 files without an error. Same problem with FTPing with DW MX.
Transmit is awesome -- I will gladly pay the $25 purchase price.

Yes, I liked Transmit when I tried it out. Another really good one is Captain FTP. I almost registered that one, but don't have the spare dough at the moment.
But I use mostly shell to do all my web based stuff. Works really good, and it is pretty fast. Just gotta know what you're doing.Emrys

I've been using Transmit at work for 3-4 years now, and I was wondering what FTP client I should use at home with my OSX set-up.
Think I'll download Transmit tonight.
