Adam do you have an index page ? If you specify a specific page that you know is in the directory do you get this error ? It sounds like (yeah, that's a terrible way to diagnose problems I know) that the system can't find a default home page (can't remember how this is specified) and is therefore trying to present a directory listing. If I remember rightly you permit this by creating a file with a certain name or extension in the directory you want to allow browsing on (its a while since I did this) Hope this is some use Regards Evan Harris >Hi Everyone, > >This is probably a stupid question, but I'm trying to test a website >running on V5R1 machine.
