If you have not loaded an index page, then trying to access the site via a browser will give an error message. This does not mean your files are not available to your brother.

Please pardon my ignorance but what is an index page and how do I load it. This is my first time trying to use ISP web-space and 'I don't know nuffin'

Thanks, just put in click here and as you say, the browser asked what I wanted to do. My first fumbling steps but it isn't as easy as my son would have it, then he is only 34 and I am 40 years older. They didn't have this new-fangled internet when I started as a computer field engineer in 1963

For the future I would be pleased to know of a noddy guide to FTP and creating index.html
