Anyone know if there is a bug reported on FB viewing the Index of a directory that doesn't contain any HTML files?

I stumbled on this one earlier today trying to access some of my web space where I store files for easy download when I need them.

To demonstrate this I setup a test folder and saved the opening.gif there... you can check it out by going to http://www.hawksnet.net/test

This results in a Mozilla Firebird does not know how to handle this file type error: Image

I tested this in all the latest releases I have, Mozilla and Mozilla Firebird... if I go back to Mozilla 1.4 release it works as it is supposed to. If in the latest releases of FB, I set FB to open this type of file it copies the directory list to c:\temp\random file name ie... file:///C:/TEMP/tra4yr8l-1 and opens it displaying the

Index of /test/

that's not quite the problem, but there is a bug.

your server is giving a horribly broken content type:

Server: NetWare-Enterprise-Web-Server/5.1
Date: Wed, 30 Jul 2003 16:07:09 GMT
Content-type: text/html;

What did you use to view that header information?

Thanks

I actually used Samspade - http://www.samspade.org/t/

for Mozilla folks, a more usual tool that does something similar is http://webtools.mozilla.org/web-sniffer/

Using that websniffer tool this is the output I get...

Server: NetWare-Enterprise-Web-Server/5.1CRLF
Date: Wed, 30 Jul 2003 20:48:05 GMTCRLF
Location: http://www.hawksnet.net/test/CRLF
Content-length: 239CRLF
Content-type: text/htmlCRLF
Connection: closeCRLF
CRLF

So where is that broken content type coming from? Is there anything I can fix on that server?

Thanks...

strange - that's what it is supposed to be. I get a whole bunch of garbage on the end of the content type header.

It's coming from the server. I've no idea it's fixable or not. It should be, but I know nothing about Netscape web servers...

I am the admin for that server... so if I had some idea of what could be causing that I could fix it... and from the image I posted above it is obvious that there is a broken content type even though websniffer is reporting the content type correctly.

I will second the broken html headers.. Doing it manually through telnet:

Code: Select all
telnet www.hawksnet.net 80
GET /test/ HTTP/1.1
Host: www.hawksnet.net



Code: Select all
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
