Suddenly there are no files listed in my Fetch 3.0.3 window when I go to an ftp site. Everything else appears to work normally--directory names, 'connected' notifications, server info windows. Anybody know why  the lists just disappeared?

Have you installed Internet Config for the first time? If so, check that you have filled all the right options when you open the program. If you've done that, and can get as far as directories etc., have you tried at other times and different sites for different sorts of files? I just installed Fetch 3.03 and it works fine. Perhaps you could try trashing the old Fetch Preferences file, reboot, and try it again, from a site that you are sure is working properly.

I'll put this as an answer, but if you have no better luck, then reject it and someone else can try to help you.

Appreciate the suggestion; an A for effort is demoted by an unsuccessful solution. It's a tough one. Thanks again.
