    do you get a 403 error when you browse to it in the browser?

    Try index.shtml, index.php, index.asp, index.htm, index.jsp.

    They probably have "Options -Indexes" set in their .htaccess file. I do that too. You can fetch any file that you know about, but you can't get a directory, because I frequently have half-baked stuff in progress there that I don't want anybody to see.
