    is not invalid, and is equivalent to http://host:port/.
    is invalid.
I know, however the CERN server remaps directory URLs automatically. See,


Which says:

	By default there is no difference between directory names with
	and without a trailing slash when it comes to welcome pages.
	The one without a trailing slash will cause an automatic
	redirection to the one with a trailing slash, which then gets
	mapped to the welcome page.

	If it is desirable to have plain directory names to produce a
	directory listing, and only the ones with a trailing slash
	cause the welcome page to be returned, set the AlwaysWelcome
	directive to off:
		AlwaysWelcome Off
	Default value is On.
It should work exactly the same as the syntactically correct URL.
