Hi. I'm developing an application that has to download files from a certain website, but I get a 403 - Forbidden error. The thing is, strange enough, that both JDownloader and IDM download the files just fine. But, on the other hand, if I put the address manually into Firefox, I get the same 403 error.

So, in short...

Web browser: Error 403
Wininet object: Error 403
IDM: OK
JDownloader: OK

I'd really want to download the files from my software without having to resort to third party applications, but I have to overcome this 403 problem. Does anybody know why this happens and any possible way to fix it? Do JDownloader and IDM have a special way of downloading files and accessing websites other than wininet?

Thanks in advance.
