AllowDirectoryBrowsing Property

Sets the Internet Information Services Directory browsing property for the selected folder on the target computer. That Internet Information Services property determines whether users can see a hypertext listing of files and subdirectories in a virtual directory.


This property is applied recursively to the selected folder and all folders below it, unless it is overridden on a lower folder.

The settings for the AllowDirectoryBrowsing property are:




Users cannot see the directory listing. An "Access Forbidden" message is displayed.


Users can browse a hypertext listing of files and subdirectories.

This setting corresponds to the Directory browsing check box on the Directory page of the Internet Information Services Web Properties dialog box.
