I need to access these web sites for updates to work on forefront



when I try thru IE8 to test access I  get thie error

403 forbidden access is deined
you do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied

I do not run windows firewall on the server the service is disabled

I have a Cisco router CISCO851W-G-A-K9 which all internet access flows thru

I checked this http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318380

but that talks about changing your IIS do not understand why my IIS on the server would stop access to this web site

Is it a protocol that is not working on the router maybe?

Need some help on this one
