Can you ping the domain? If you can't it's possible that the domain
registration has expired.

     Why would Fetch for X tell me there is "no host by that name" when
try to use the exact same setup I have on Fetch for 9 (v3) and get into 
the server just fine? Other domains work but the one that just will not 
has me baffled.

Yes I have the ftp.domain.org, username/password correct.
I've tried unchecking/checking passive mode although it's checked on the

Os 9 version. The rest of the settings are exact and I've never had a 
problem with Fetch connecting before.

What could be wrong telling me there is no host by that name?
