Curious ftp problem with squid 1.1.3

From: Tim Steele <>

Scenario: Client is Windows 3.1 Internet Explorer 3.0 (version 3.0.1152)

Client clicks on a link in a Web page to

Internet Explorer reports "The attempt to load 'ftp://.../foobar.gqa failed"

The problem can be fixed by:

* turning off proxy access (hence squid is implicated)


* renaming the file to foobar.bin


* using the Macintosh version of Internet Explorer 3.0

in which case it downloads properly.

Strange, huh? Any ideas?
