Duplicate title issues with index.shtml, etc

Just looking at the Webmaster Tools and noticed I'm having some duplicate title issues with stuff like this:

/ and
/index.shtml

/subdir/extensionlesspagename and
/subdir/extensionlesspagename/

Is there a way to handle this with Google? Just a quick note that I'm running nginx, not apache.

There's a good section about these "canonical problems" in the Hot Topics area [webmasterworld.com], which is always pinned to the top of this forum's index page.

The strategies would be the same on any server, even though the syntax and technology vary. There is a rewrite module available for Nginx that may come in handy for you - see [wiki.codemongers.com...]
