Question

" 403 - Forbidden: Access is denied."

I recently have been getting the following message for a website which in the past I have accessed scores of times. What "credentials" do I have to supply and where?

----------------------------------------
403 - Forbidden: Access is denied.
You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.

----------------------------------------

Thanks.

Re: forbidden

You have to ask their webmaster. Even if you had posted the URL, nobody else can tell.

Thanks, Kees; but there's no way to contact the webmaster!..

Thanks, Kees; but there's no way to contact the webmaster because I can't access the web site. I suspect that the web site has run into some problem. (It was an excellent web site.)

Thanks again, and regards.
