In terms of the WinInet extender, unfortunately, I can see now that there won't be any sort of quick fix for the problem. It turns out that after looking in more detail into the OpenVMS support news groups on Usenet, there is a known bug in IE w/respect to how it requests directory listings, and this bug specifically affects the way that the output from most FTP servers on OpenVMS is handled. There's no fix for it other than to change the actual FTP server being used on OpenVMS such that Unix-style directory listing output is sent to the FTP client. One such product is the MagGoat FTP server. IIRC, all of the MadGoat products for OpenVMS are freeware/shareware and links to them can be found at www.process.com.
