Fetch Help
 
I have the system firewall turned on and I found out this AM that the firewall is blocking Fetch from connecting to some web server's that I use. I turned firewall off and all worked fine. I checked FTP and turned the FW back on but it's still getting blocked. How can I make this work so I can leave the firewall on?

Is this the OS X firewall or the router's?

You probably just need to open some ports or switch your port number, but I find this odd because I use the standard OS X firewall and also use Fetch and don't have this issue. Is it a standard function you're doing?

OS X firewall.

I have attached a screen shot of Fetch's message.

Any ideas?

When I turn OSX firewall off Fetch works fine.

Any ideas on why fetch uploads pretty darn slow? On my pc using WS FTP it uploads much faster than on here when it comes to larger files.

I didnt want to make a whole new topic on this, so I tried to find one that met my needs.... Thanks guys.

If the server is under heavy stress, it could take longer to upload. Who do you host with? Also sometimes hosting companies put limits on FTP so it only uploads/downloads are certain speeds.

Feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

I do understand limited upload and download speeds.

However, it is always faster on my pc to upload files than on my mac.

Is there some other software I can use other than Fetch?

Personally I have only used Fetch, so I am not sure how these others work. You can always search google for Mac FTP programs.
