Symptoms

When you view File Transfer Protocol (FTP) sites in Microsoft Internet Explorer, you may notice that there are no links to navigate up through directory levels to the parent directory in the FTP site.

Cause

This issue occurs when Internet Explorer is configured to use Web Proxy.

Note The "Hotfix download available" form displays the languages for which the hotfix is available. If you do not see your language, it is because a hotfix is not available for that language.When you apply this fix to ISA Server and then restart the Web Proxy service, FTP connections through the Web Proxy receive an additional link (..) at the top of the directory listing. When you click this link, ISA sends a CWD .. command to the FTP server, followed by a DIR command, to refresh the directory listing.
