Hi All,

We are accessing some webservices which we are hitting from Spring MVC application. While we are accessing these Webservices, we are getting HTTP 403 : Forbidden Address error. Here, the webservices development team is different from ours, and we are hitting the webservices end point. As per research over google for 403 error, it seems that our request is going to the webservices and webservices are not able to process the request but the webservices team is saying that they didn't get any request and hence, issue lie at our end. We are not sure why we are getting this error and how to resolve this? Please help us in resolving this issue.

Thanks.

Some pointers that I can think of -
a. are you using correct URL to access web service?
b. Is web service is deployed on server which is hosted in different subnet ?
c. are you able to access/ping/telnet web service deployment server ip address ? if not then definitely network access issue.
d. is there any firewall sit between your dev server and web service deployment server? may be that firewall is sending back 403 access error
e. is web service deployment server is LINUX/UNIX server ? if yes then check whether permission sets for web service on web service deployment server is correct or not.
