My JSP file running on server has a link to the local file. It is not working while clicking on it.
If I copy it in my local system and save as an html then the link will work.

Find the sample JSP below.

<HTML>

<BODY >
<A href="file:///D:\Documents\Finance\test.html">test</A>
</BODY>
</HTML>

Is IE is restricting inks to local files (and directories) from remote files

Yes. For security reasons, Internet Explorer blocks links from remote sites to files on the local machine. This is known as Zone Elevation. For more information, see this page: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms537185.aspx
