When I try to bring up the list of remote dsns I get the following error:

Http Error Code 403 Forbidden

It is only with one site. From any other site I can view all dsns.

By far the most common reason for this error is that directory browsing is forbidden for the Web site. Most Web sites want you to navigate using the URLs in the Web pages for that site. They do not often allow you to browse the file directory structure of the site.

I have resolved the problem. It seems that errors occur when tring to connect to a ssl site. I created a new website in IIS and gave it the same home directory that my secure site has. Then I set the testing server in dreamweaver to point to this new site and everything works.
