error message :You don't have permission to access . when i try to download ZIP file

Dear All,
I have SUN Solaris 10 websever  oracle -EBS 10-
There is a HTML page user can read documents though their browser its PDF.XLS and ZIP files
They can read PDF or XLS but when they trying to access ZIP file, the following error message they are facing:

304 Forbidden
You don't have permission to access (/OA_HTML/11idoc/acrobat/r115102ug.zip -as example) on this server


Even if I change the permission to 777 or to other will face same error message
But if I will change the extension  name  from xxx.zip to xxx.old for example and HTML code to point to the same file , I can download the file

Thanks
Nibal

By default, Solaris 10 comes with zip/unzip.

It is in /usr/bin

Have a look in the webserver error log to see if it gives you some more clues as to why you are getting a 403 error.

>>>They can read PDF or XLS but when they trying to access ZIP file, the following error message they are facing:<<<

pdf you can open on Webbrowser with out downloading it
Not sure about XLS .. could be the same
but zip needs download on local system and then needs to be unzipped
As you saying same same zip file xxx.zip file if renamed to xxx.old then you having no problem

create another new zip file and see if the problem having to .ZIP extention or only to one file

>>>>>Note: that same application is running under windows server with same HTML code with same client not given same problem and its working fine<<<<
i didn't understood this line

Thanks for correcting me .
I think solaris 8 and 7 don't have zip by default

Question for you
How to determine what packages are  already installed by default in Solaris 10.?
How did you find out zip /unzip comes in solaris by Default

Thanks

Solaris 10 packages are just the same as any other Solaris version

pkginfo -l

will list all installed packages.

I know zip/unzip comes with Solaris by default as it is in /usr/bin on all the Solaris 10 systems I look after.

Thanx
SUNWzip package is installed !
Once click on the link for any zip file it gives this same error message that mean open or download same !!
I mean by windows server : same application is running on windows server but without error message zip files or PDF are accessible

thanks again

I think to progress this any further, you're going to need to check the webserver error log to see if it has any more detail as to why it's getting a permission denied error.

Hi all,
i got the solution from Oracle

Cause
Starting with AD patch 2902755 going forward,
file apps_ux.conf and apps_nt.conf delivers version 115.30 or higher
which includes the fix for a security breach issue.

You can no longer open an attachment of type .zip, .class, and .java.
Fix
Resolution navigation:

Revised fron earlier version.

If you wish to defeat this security measure (not recommended),
go to the directory $FND_TOP/admin/template
and edit apps_ux.conf and or apps_nt.conf to remove any or all the file types
that are currently disallowed.

Stop all services (adstpall.sh)
Rerun adautocfg.sh
Start all services (adstrtal.sh)

Thanks ,
Nibal
