  • WebResource.axd reported Error 404, images - 403.1 - Forbidden

    Jan 16, 2008 11:01 AM|Galcho|LINK

    Hi guys!

    We decided to run broken link checker on huge ASP.NET site on staging server (Win 2003 & IIS6). This could also act as a small load test.

    so far so good but I've noticed two main reports:

    • <div mce_keep="true">WebResource.axd with one specific parameter reported Error 404.0 - file not found</div>
    • <div mce_keep="true">some requests to images (.gif) reported Error 403.1 - Forbidden</div>

    These errors are logged on IIS log. 

    This is quite strange because when I try to run them in the browser manually everything is fine. The hardware seems not very loaded

    Any thoughts and inputs are highly appreciated.

    P.S. this is crossposted to ASP.NET Forums too as I didn't know which is appropriate one....

    Thanks in advance,

    Strange yes.  403.1 specifically mean execute access forbidden.

    It seems as if your link checker is trying to submit request that execute the gifs.

    yep, at least this is a clue....

    actually from log I see that link checker uses HEAD request and it seems this one fails...

    Is it possible HEAD request to image cause execute action on the server?

     

    Thanks for your assistance
