Mapped FTP looks like it is being viewed in IE, HELP!

Hi, I've mapped an FTP of mine to a number of computers, but on this particular remote user's computer he is saying that it looks like he is viewing the FTP through IE rather than windows explorer (he is seeing the . .. to change directory and sees the directory as links).  I think this can be fixed through internet explorer settings but I'm not sure.  someone please help me fix this so he can browse the FTP as I intended as a standard windows folder.

THanks,
Bevo

Under IE advanced settings, check the box to "enable FTP folder view".  Here is a link on where to find it, and more steps if needed. But I'm thinking thats your problem.

Sounds more like the FTP connection is being proxied.  Is there a proxy server configured in Internet Explorer (Tools ==> Internet Options ==> Connections ==> [Lan Settings] ==> [Advanced] ==> FTP)??  Is the router/firewall on the edge of the network doing any screening/filtering of connections??

Hope this helps

This is for a person working remotely and they did mention that there was a proxy server message. How can I confirm this?

Also CrowaX, I checked those settings earlier with this person and they didn't seem to change anything (I also had them uncheck and then recheck and apply ,but nothing changed).

For a client side configured proxy:
Is there a proxy server configured in Internet Explorer (Tools ==> Internet Options ==> Connections ==> [Lan Settings] ==> [Advanced] ==> FTP)??
If the proxy is a silent inline type proxy, then the end users network administrator would be able to tell you.

If it is being tampered with by a Proxy server there is little you can do other than configuring an exclusion for your servers (both in IE and on the end users edge firewall).
