Hi Experts,

I have run a BPA on my SBS 2011 server and noticed there is the below error.

Category: Configuration
Source: 404
Issue: When you try to browse the web through Remote Web Access (RWA), you receive an "HTTP Error 403.1 - Forbidden" error message
Resolution: Start IIS Manager, expand Default Web Site, and then expand the Remote virtual directory . In Features view, double-click Handler Mappings, and then in the Action pane on the right, click Edit Feature Permissions. Click to select the Read and Script check boxes, and then click OK.

I have checked IIS as mentioned and it has Read, Script & Execute enabled. (see bellow)

Should Execute be enabled?

Look forward to reading your comments!

When you go to the IIS settings, right-click on the website/application and go to properties. Under the Home Directory tab, you can set the execute permissions to script only (or scripts and executables, if you're using executable files too).

In the mean while here is a pretty good article to read through..

It also provides a link to the IIS resouce kit...

Hi Striker,

ended up disabling executable. Your answer didn't really answer my question so i cannot mark it correct.

I searched for HOURS to find this answer. I never thought to uncheck "Executable". Kudos.

I joined just to say "thank you".
