The "Access Forbidden" Problem
The ability to run multiple TCP/IP stacks under WebTen can
sometimes create confusion when setting up WebTen for the first
time. Under certain start up conditions, WebTen may become
unintentionally configured with an IP address that does not
match the IP address assigned to OpenTransport in the TCP/IP
Control Panel. Browser access to WebTen under these circumstances
will return a 403 Access Forbidden error message.
The problem can be easily corrected by re-creating
the WebTen Preferences file following the steps below.
Rebuilding the WebTen Preferences
- Drag the WebTen Preferences file from the Preferences
folder into the Trash.
- Launch WebTen. The default WebTen network preferences will appear.
- Check "Replace Open Transport".
- Set the Ethernet IP address to match the assigned address in the
OpenTransport TCP/IP Control Panel.
- Un-check "Replace Open Transport" and
- Drag the tenon:apache:conf:httpd.conf file to the Trash.
- Duplicate the tenon:apache:conf:Release:httpd.conf
file into the tenon:apache:conf
- Launch WebTen.
- Launch a Web browser.
- Verify your configuration by connecting to WebTen from
the browser using
either the loopback IP address "127.0.0.1", or,
if a DNS server is configured,
via the name "localhost".
