Hi,
I create one

robots.txt

file, within
C:\inetpub\wwwroot

within the current Win 2008 server, but when I'm to acccess this

http://my-friend.co/robots.txt

I get this error

SITE"


Internet Information Services 7.5



Error Summary 
HTTP Error 403.4 - Forbidden

The page you are trying to access is secured with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

Most likely causes: •Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is enabled for the URL requested.
•The page request was made over HTTP, but the server requires the request from a secure channel that uses HTTPS

If you can access it at https://my-friend.co/robots.txt, then you have the whole site set up as an HTTPS site.  Your self-signed certificate will be a problem to outsiders.

Thanks.
But the search engine does expect to access this

http://my-friend.co/robots.txt

instead of accessing "https", doesn't it?

I don't think it cares.  It will access thru the same protocol as it used to access the main site.
