Yes, I've had this before, I think its something to do with not accessing the directory correctly. Try adding something like index.htm or index.html to the end of the web address. Do you have a link to the site you're trying to access?

I get the same as you. I think its as I thought, there isn't an index page of some sort to refer to, so you're probably trying to access the files on the web page directly, which is illegal, that's the result you're seeing. When you call a web page it looks for a file called index.html if it doesn't find it it carries on down a list till it find some sort of reference, PCA's is index.cfm

If it has been working and now has stopped, it could be they are doing some maintenance on the site, so the index page has been removed, or there's a problem with the site's host. I get a similar message at work on or web page if I forget to upload the index page after I've worked on it.
