Ways to scan an IIS if 'directory browsing' has been disabled

We have a finding from an external PT scan tt one website (IIS 7.0) has
directory browsing enabled & a few folders were listable.

Now that we've applied the fix below, I need a safe & easy way to
rescan without initiating the external PT scan (which I need a CR):
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc731109(v=ws.10).aspx

Do I need to get the ISP to whitelist my source IP for this 'stripped down'
scan for directory browsing?

The full external PT tests for many items.  If there's an online site that
allow me to do just this (without scanning for other items) & generate
a decent-looking report, do share,  thanks

Do you have access to the server OS via RDP or something similar or have you just hosted your site with a shared host provider?

If you have access, the process of checking is trivial and can be done with a PowerShell module called Carbon.

If you are in a shared hosting situation and do not have access to the host OS, you are short on options.  You would need to use a http site scanner to crawl and scrape your site and then you would have to review the scraped output for directory browsing enabled structures.  Most providers that I have used, do not whitelist IP for pen testing.  It would be better to work with your provider to ensure that this feature is disabled.  Maybe asking for a regular site configuration report (relatively easy with PowerShell) and reviewing the settings to check for changes (authorized or not).

PT = Penetration Test
and the PT our vendor uses includes a full suite of items that it scan.

I just want to check/scan for the specific IIS listable/browseable folders  is still there
without going thru the full suite
