Sun ONE (iPlanet) Web server lists Web site files instead of displaying map


Using Sun ONE (iPlanet) Web server, when I type the URL to my ArcIMS Web site in my browser, the browser lists the files and directories in that folder instead of displaying the map.


Sun ONE (iPlanet) Web Server requires some additional configuration for an ArcIMS map to display in a browser.
