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:
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
