It's possible that Comcast is not allowing you to show a directory listing without a webpage. Why not just zip up the files and send them to your friend or let them download a zip. If all you are looking to do is transfer large files, websites might not be what you need. Maybe a service like YouSendIt is what you need: https://www.yousendit.com/ .
Thanks for the suggestions. So, I might not be doing anything wrong. I think now, that I have heard that about Comcast before.
Nothing to do with Comcast specifically.
The link at
is pointing to a folder with no index.html file inside it.
That'll give a 403 error on most webhosts.
Best options are to either upload a ZIP file containing the images then post a link to that ZIP file.
Or, easiest, use a large email service e.g. dropsend.com, yousendit.com etc.
As you can see, I am a real novice. The zip file and Dropsend worked.
But, I would like to understand the basics. How should I have constructed the link to the directory /JohnsPhotos? My home page is index.html. Another index.html inside the Folder, and that linked to the file? Sorry for not understanding these basics.
Thanks so much for your help,

I see (from re-visiting the link you first posted) that you've already answered this question for yourself.
At http://home.comcast.net/~sonnytaylor/JohnsFolder/John.html you've created a link pointing to a ZIP file
That works fine.
Yes, I used your advice, and gave it a try, and it worked. Learned a lot. Thanks.
