That is the "access denied" code.  Check out a few of these links:

Hi,

":" is a special character and it should be encoded when used in an url. So pleas try to use %3A instead of ":" such  as:

 http://localhost/AndyPSV%3Axxx

This one.

When you use : in a url it's for the port number. are you trying to hide a site by requiring a different port number? ie http://www.mysite.com/login.php:4242

Is so then you'll have to setup the apache config to listen for that port

# Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or
# ports, in addition to the default. See also the <VirtualHost>
# directive.
#
#Listen 3000
#Listen 12.34.56.78:80
#Listen 80
