MS IE 4.0 and ftp problems

It seems that MSIE and Squid don't seem to work well in my setup. While
http is o.k., ftp is not.

Ftp gets basically hang the browser after a few directory accesses and
the whole thing goes dead (no modem activity when clicking on refresh,
home, etc) until I go into the options and turn-off the proxy.

It is particularly troublesome on th MS site. One thing I do notice is
the URLs are a bit different between MSIE and Netscape. All the ftp
URLs for the MS site include "internal-gopher-menu" like so:

882160512.318 2405 TCP_MISS/500 896 GET -
DIRECT/ text/html

I don't get the internal-gopher-menu when I use Netscape and I don't
have any trouble with Netscape either.

I have only noticed this problem after upgrading to 1.1.18 from 1.1.10.
However, it may have always been there as a user brought it to my

My system is FreeBSD 2.2.5-STABLE with Squid 1.1.18

Any help is appreciated.
