Hi

I'm trying to have sound files (wav or mp3) on my webpage. However, every time I try to open the sound file I get:

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access ... url of soundfile

The server is wanadoo in belgium
I'm using dreamweaver

Help?

Sounds like your ISP might not let you. To test ... rename the file to some other file extension and try downloading it.

Easier way of shortcutting that is to email the support desk of wanadoo - given the fuss over P2P networks and the music industry it wouldn't be a surprise for an ISP to take a stance that af500 suggests
