Thanks for the reply, but I doubt it. Even if my VPN (A standard MS Windows
2000 setting, no special software) proves an obstacle to the directory
listing by Apache, the bug is in Apache 2.0, as the fact that it's now
set-up and working on 1.3.24 can prove:
to see for yourself. Furthermore, *everything* else about my internet
connection and server(s) is working, but with software you can never know.

In any case, I'll wait a week for further replies, genious ideas and wierd
experiments before I submit the bug to the Bugzilla engine.

I would like to take the chance to apologize for sending HTML mail to this
list - I did not notice the setting was On in my e-mail client until it was
too late.

Thanks again,
