We have an SSP indexing our site using a read-only account to spider the content.
We have an issue that the SSP is indexing /pages/ without the name of an aspx. When returning search results this causes an Access Denied error when clicking on the link for anonymous users, although /pages/default.aspx does not require login.
Why does /pages/ not redirect to /pages/default.aspx for anonymous users like it does for authenticated users? The entire site is setup to allow anonymous access.
