Has to be ;) Seriously, it most likely is, as I use Fetch myself to
connect to Info-Newt to post pages, etc. I've used it from both within
my own private Ethernet, and from the network at work thru the firewall
at work.

What's the error message you're getting from Fetch?

To contribute, you use ID: newtgifts, password: newtgifts when you log
in to using Fetch and you'll be taken DIRECTLY to the
Contributions folder (although to Fetch it'll appear to be the root
folder (i.e. "/"). If you try to specify a /Contributions directory,
you'll get an error message....but you'll be taken to the proper place
anyway, and (as I said) it'll look like the root folder of the site,
since /Contributions is the root directory for the "newtgifts" account.

(I just retested all this with Fetch, by the way, to make sure.)

To just browse, use ID: anonymous, password: your email address and you
can browse the whole info-newt ftp site, but not upload.

Whoa, haven't seen Cyberdog mentioned in a long time (probably got it on
my machine somewhere, as OpenDoc is installed...)
