Using WinInet (CFtpConnection class etc) how do you differentiate between a File/Directory and a link to a file/directory from a UNIX FTP server.  Linked Directories show up as files when I use Wininet.  When I try to go into the directory, I cannot.

Is there a special option to use within the CInternetSession or CFtpConnection class, or does one have the text the CFileFind class return parameters?

Which command is the list command part of?  Is it a member of WinInet?

If not, how do I perform a list command?  
Never used WinInet.   LIST is a command which is part of the FTP protocol.   It's essential but I don't know how WinInet is implemented so I can't tell if you can use it directly.
