HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

(VB Express website directed me to ASP.NET Web Services which in turn redirected me to this forum).

 Hopefully someone can help me here...... 

I am using VIsual Web Developer and downloaded the small business application to use as a starting point to help my wife get a website up for her small business. When I load the application, I can F5 and it runs fine but as soon as I make any modification to the app and hit F5, I get the HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden when it tries to show the website.

I notice a pop up that occurs when I run that allows me to choose the link for my app and it displays correctly (I close the webpage that has the error on it).

This seems like a pain, is there a setting I'm missing - I would think that this should "just work".

What's up?????

HTTP 400 Bad Request Error when uploading to document library


I am running MOSS 3007 Standard on Windows 2003. When trying to upload files larger than about 29Mb, I am getting an HTTP 400 Bad request error. The error states "HTTP Error 400 - Request is badly formed." I am able to successfully upload a 28Mb file. Sharepoint is configured to accept files up to 75Mb.

I have done a fair amount of research on this, but none of the solutions seem to apply to our environment. The two most likely candidates do not apply, for example we are NOT running URLScan (there are a variety of solutions suggesting this could be an issue with uploads of 30Mb or more), and we are on 2003 with IIS6, so again the issue relating to 2008 and IIS7 do not apply.

The "Request is badly formed" part of the request is particularly confusing as most issues I have come across where this error is the symptom point to errors in custom code that is trying to talk to SharePoint. We have done none of our own custom coding and this error is occurring when attempting a simple upload to a document library.

Trying to drag and drop the file across when the document library is open in windows explorer also fails.

I did come across someone saying they had a similar problem which was caused by a damaged content database, however in this case, it is occuring regardless of which content database I use, so either they are all corrupt

WebFaultException throwing a "not handled by user code" error and returning an HTTP 500 to the clien

I am trying to return a BadRequest and simple message when implentation throws an error in a WCF REST service, but the WebFaultExcption itself is throwing an exception and returning an HTTP 500 instead. Any ideas on why this might be happening?

MS Message Queueing 4.0 HTTP Support - 500 Internal Server Error

Hi all,   I've been trying to set up MSMQ 4.0 with HTTP Support to allow one of our partners to send messages to us. However, whenever I make any call to the msmq page I get an internal server error 500 (See below). My platform is Windows 2008 SE (64-bit) running as a DC (though MSMQ is running in workgroup mode).   Any hints on what might be causing this or how I can investigate further? Are there any log files for the ISAPI extension, or the MQISE.dll, or the MSMQ service that might help me shed light on this problem?   I've seen blogs about an issue with MSMQ 3.0 where the machine name can't be 15 characters long, is this still the case with MSMQ 4.0?   The error details are as below,     Server Error in Application "WWW.MYDOMAIN.COM/MSMQ" Internet Information Services 7.0 HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, so it cannot be displayed. Detailed Error Information  Module IsapiModule Notification ExecuteRequestHandler Handler AboMapperCustom-113521 Error Code 0x8007007e Requested URL http://www.mydomain.com:80/msmq Physical Path c:\inetpub\www.mydomain.com\msmq Logon Method Anonymous Logon User Anonymous The path to the ISAPI Filter is incorrect.

An error occurred while receiving the HTTP response to xxx problem. WCF comunication

I have been having this problem transmiting data (XML from a microsoft sincronization session v1.0) to a WCF service on IIS 6.I have enabled tracing on my WCF service, verbose, but nothing shows up. No exceptions what so ever.My client connects over a GPRS line. But i have also done this over ADSL with the same results.The thing is, it starts transmiting ( i can see it on wireshark) but suddenly the server side sends a TCP RST packet and the transmission ends with a client exception like An error occurred while receiving the HTTP response to http://blabalblabla/Service.svc. This could be due to the service endpoint binding not using the HTTP protocol. This could also be due to an HTTP request context being aborted by the server (possibly due to the service shutting down). See server logs for more details.It never actually gets to my code (otherwise i would probably see something on my trace)Thank you!My binding are this (on client):<basicHttpBinding><binding name="BasicHttpBinding_Issap_mainSyncContract" closeTimeout="00:01:00" openTimeout="00:01:00" receiveTimeout="00:10:00" sendTimeout="00:10:00" allowCookies="false" bypassProxyOnLocal="false" hostNameComparisonMode="StrongWildcard" maxBufferSize="2147483647" maxBufferPoolSize="2147483647" maxReceivedMessageSize="

WCF Client Behind ISA: HTTP Error 407


I am moving this thread to WCF from .NET Networking and Communication


We have to connect to a 3rd party XML Web Service outside our LAN by adding a WCF Service Reference to a simple console application


When attempting to invoke any of the generated client class methods, we recieve the following error: "The remote server returned an unexpected response: (407) Proxy Authentication Required ( The ISA Server requires authorization to fulfill the request. Access to the Web Proxy service is denied.  )."

In old style ASMX Web Reference:

TheServiceWse client = new TheServiceWse();

client.Proxy = new System.Net.WebProxy("ISA Server Name", 800);

Sharepoint list NewFormUsr form page gives HTTP 404 error



We have main SP list say X, within that we have other child SP list say A, B and C. When I view all available list in the SP site I can view all list here (http://server/sitename/_layouts/viewlists.aspx?Basetype=0)

When trying to add new item individually to child list the NewFormUsr.aspx page opens with popup message "You are only allowed to add new items from the [Main List Name] Screen".

Going back to main list DispFormUsr.aspx page I can see a form with all columns of the main list and at the bottom all child list with a link to add new items to them. However, when we try to add new item to child list from this page the NewFormUsr.aspx for child list gives webpage cannot be found error. I'm not sure why this suddenly started to happen as it use to work before. Can someone advice if they had similar problem and how was it solved?
