I'm asking about the client side. Is it possible to get a directory listing from an apache if I know listings are allowed but there's a index.htm in this directory?

You can remove index.htm from the DirectoryIndex directive.

I'm not in control of that Server. That's what I meant with client side. – randomx86 Jul 6 '11 at 18:55
In that case, no. It would be a pretty bad thing security-wise if the client could control what the server serves in that way. – EEAA Jul 6 '11 at 18:59
