That depends on the server setup.  If you request just / then if the
server is setup to default to default.asp then that's what you get.
If it's setup to default to index.html then that will be returned.  If
neither are available then the server might show a directory listing, if
it's set up that way.

So, you need to understand how the server works and how it's confgured
to answer that question.

Or go to those URLs you list and see what happens.

See my previous response to that question.  Sure you can index
