  • User836698845 posted


    I've been for 2 day, looking (in the worng places....) and found no solution or something that would help me to solve this problem.

    This is the scenario: IIS 6 + ASP.NET 2.0 WebSite, Default Web Site with Some Virtual Directories...

    With one of those Virtual directories, I have an issue. I log the user (web.config with Forms Authentication, IIS with Anonimous Access, directory browsin), go to a menu page, click on a button to redirect to another page and there I have a form with a button.

    When I click the button I get the  

    The website declined to show this webpage

    HTTP 403 <div class="divider"></div>

    Most likely causes:

    • This website requires you to log in.

    What you can try:

    Go back to the previous page.Go back to the previous page.
    More information More information&lt;ID id="moreInformation"&gt;More information&lt;/ID&gt;
    <div id="infoBlockID" class="infoBlock">

    This error (HTTP 403 Forbidden) means that Internet Explorer was able to connect to the website, but it does not have permission to view the webpage.

    For more information about HTTP errors, see Help.


    This is happening if I access the site from  www.sitexpto.com/testsite  There is nothing in the event viewer also.

    If I access and login by IP address (inside the company infrastructure) I can login, menu, redirect to page with the form and button, and when I click the button everything works.

    I may be looking in the wrong direction, but If someone could give me some advice...I'm starting to go crazy...for real.

    Thank you in advance

    Thank you.

    Found that it is the external firewall that is blocking the access with SQL Inejection error messas. Now I have to see why...since there is no query strings, or sql commands in clear or in the page.
