301 Redirect from www.domain.com/folder to www.domain.com/folder/index.html

I have a site that i am trying to do some redirects for.
The site currently has some linking partners who, for various reasons, can't change the URL.
the old url is something like
www.domain.com/Folder

I need it to point to :
www.domain.com/Folder/index.html

I have tried it using
redirect 301 /Folder/$ http://www.domain.com/Folder/index.html 

but it didn't work.
 
I also tried
redirect 301 /Folder$ http://www.domain.com/Folder/index.html and that didn't work either.
 
I also tried putting a .htaccess file in the folder but it didn't work either.
If there is a way to force the folder to go to the index file without having to type in index.html into the URL, that would be great too!
Any help is greatly appreciated!!!!

You must use RedirectMatch here, if /Folder/ is identical. In order to use this directive in a .htaccess file, make sure you've set AllowOverride to FileInfo in your httpd.conf. Otherwise this directive will be ignored in a .htaccess file.

redirectmatch 301 ^/Folder/?$ http://www.domain.com/Folder/index.html

hi Caiapfas,

try using this .htaccess file

<LIMIT GET POST>
order deny,allow
deny from all
allow from none
</LIMIT>
ErrorDocument 403 http://www.domain.com/Folder/index.html

hope this will helps

when accessing the folder where you will place the .htaccess file it will redirect the user to http://www.domain.com/Folder/index.html
