    I occassionally encounter web "index pages" like this one:

    Can I get a similar listing of the files in a directory in the storage
    space I have with my ISP Comcast, or does that require special
    permissions or conditions established by the ISP. (Or maybe some
    permission placed on the directory by me?)

    I've tried accessing a directory which has no file named "index.html" in
    it, that's in my Comcast personal storage space, but that just brings up
    a Comcast error page.

    Thanks guys,

    That's generally done on the server level.
    If you have a hosted site, and have cpanel, you can set the permissions that
    You can ask comcast if they'll change the permission settings for your site,
    but I doubt they will.
    All it is, is a text listing of the contents of the folder.
    Similar to windows explorer.
