Hi There,
I have manually deployed a WCF on IIS 7 and am getting the "HTTP Error 403.14 - Forbidden" error message.

Am I missing something?

url is not correct. I think it should also have "../Service" something like this..

The url seems correct. I think this is related to permmissions issues. Since I am new to IIS 7 I don't know what to change...

"HTTP Error 403.14" means you don't have a 'default' document in that directory and directory browsing is not enabled.  Default document would be something like 'default.aspx' or 'index.html'.  You should be able to access your application with the full URL including the filename but not by just the directory without a default document.

This error occurs because a Web site does not have the Directory Browsing feature enabled, and the default document is not configured.
