    Is there any kind of software that lets you type in a domain, and returns a list of direcories and files?

    And then you can download the files?

    Thanks.

    Seems cool - but that does it for that local webserver right?

    I'm talking about a remote server that you may not have ftp to...

    Mabye I'm not using correct terminology - something along the lines of WebReaper.

    Why not use WebReaper then?

    Is there some specific feature you require?

    Yeah, it's just lists the contents of a given directory when the webserver is configured not to.

    I was looking for that program earlier, but I couldn't find it and ended up using SuperBot.

    Hm...WebReaper is only showing the PAGES, not directories - is there anything to do this?

    Just view directories?  Kindof like - Anonymous FTP..

    Or would something like this be easy enough to make?

    Doubtful, that would be a massive breach of webserver security.

    Besides, remember: Resource Paths (the bit in URLs between the fragment identifier and the hostname) are completely aribtrary.

    Take my Zeo Competition blog, this URL points to "/news/ParserinProgress", yet there is no directory on the server called "/news/".

    Hence why its better to follow links rather than assume those directories actually exist.

    I used an early version of Frontpage that let you point to a domain and download the website structure, it was the only thing it was good at. Big Smile
