    Hi Folks,

    New to the forum, my name's Pete. I have a sticky problem that I was hoping someone could help with. The title of this post kinda says it all. I have a website that's visible just fine inside my firewall, but outside my firewall I got nada. What's wierd is, my blackberry can see the website just fine, anywhere. But when I try to access it with my a PC using any browser, I get a 403 forbidden, outside the firewall. I don't know much but I've opened up my firewall to http:80 traffic, and as far as I know, that should do it. Is the 403 forbidden a result of the firewall or the http server? Thanks for your help.

    Are you using a software, or hardware firewall?

    Hardware firewall, a netgear prosafe. Kinda cheapo but it's all they would buy.

    Are you using any anti-spyware software that has features to block malicious internet sites?
    What browser are you using?
