    Il semble qu’il y ait pas de fichiers et http://www.bluefox.be donne actuellement «interdit». Si vous mettez «index.html» le fichier d’erreur disparaît.

    Une autre chose est que si vous n’avez pas de ports ouverts sur votre passive d’hébergement et c’est la raison pour laquelle ne peut pas télécharger des fichiers.
