IIS server was messed up, it used to work, but it started screwing up alot, plus I wanted to make it a BDC so I built a new one with a different name. I thought I got all the permissions right but I obviously missed something. Now I get;
Directory Listing Denied
This Virtual Directory does not allow contents to be listed.

What now?

Have you gone into IIS, right clicked on the Virtual Directory and then checked "Allow Directory Browsing" ?
