We have an apache server holding an internal web page>
we have a set of pcs and a set of terminals access terminal services>
when trying to access this internal webpage from a pc it works fine,
when we try and access this using the teminals on terminal services on a different server we get a 4.3: Forbidden error message,  if i log onto the server itself i can access the web page.
i have been through the apache config file and change deny all to deny none, but to no avail
any ideas anyone?

    Looks like its allowing access from only the default (local) n/w. Check the config for the site and add the network

    example: Allow from   in the site config

    Accepted Solution

    This is an example site config in apache. This could be in a seperate file for the site name itself or a part of the apache.conf file (depending on the Apache config)

    Alias /nagios /usr/local/nagios/share

    <Directory "/usr/local/nagios/share">
        Options None
        AllowOverride None
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
        AuthName "Nagios Access"
        AuthType Basic
        AuthUserFile /usr/local/nagios/etc/htpasswd.users
        Require valid-user

    Here not the "Allow from all" similarly you should check on your site config.
