Question How to look at directory when index.htm exists.

Any programs out there that allow you to see a directory even if index.htm exists?

Example: I would like to see the image dir of this VB forum but I believe a blank index file is there.

:
VBulletin does not require an index page. It generates it own tables in the home of the domain. The image dir I don't think is open to everyone also.

Have you asked some moderators or webmaster of the forum to help you?


I am not sure this belongs in the lounge.

Some older web-servers will give you a directory listing if you add ../../ at the end of the url, for example:
http://www.something.com/../../.././../

That might work. That's a bit of an exploit (of sorts). Not being able to view the directory contents is a security feature built into most modern webservers.
