Information on error 403 when accessing a web service in MapInfo Pro

UPDATED: January 24, 2018


A web server may return a 403 Forbidden HTTP status code in response to a request from a client for a web page or resource.
This indicates that the server can be reached and understood the request, but refuses to take any further action.
Status code 403 responses are the result of the web server being configured to deny access, for some reason, to the requested resource by the client.

A typical request that may receive a 403 Forbidden response is a GET for a web page, performed by a web browser to retrieve the page for display to a user in a browser window. The web server may return a 403 Forbidden status for other types of requests as well.

The Apache web server returns 403 Forbidden in response to requests for url paths that correspond to file system directories, when directory listings have been disabled in the server. Some administrators configure the Mod proxy extension to Apache to block such requests, and this will also return 403 Forbidden. Microsoft IIS responds in the same way when directory listings are denied in that server. 

The following nonstandard code are returned by Microsoft's Internet Information Services and are not officially recognized by IAN.
  • 403.11 - Password change.
  • 403.12 - Mapper denied access.
  • 403.13 - Client certificate revoked.
  • 403.14 - Directory listing denied.
  • 403.15 - Client Access Licenses exceeded.
  • 403.16 - Client certificate is untrusted or invalid.
  • 403.17 - Client certificate has expired or is not yet valid.
  • 403.18 - Cannot execute request from that application pool.
