http://cisco.com 403 Forbidden

Anyone else getting a 403 Forbidden when trying to access http://cisco.com?

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache/2.0 Server at www.cisco.com Port 80

I think someone's going to get in big trouble.

Looks like certain portions of it are coming back... that recursive chown is taking a while.

Who was talking about chmod -R 0 earlier?

Tony.

Yes. Resolves to 198.133.219.25 for me.

Maybe they've blocked you lot for a reason :wink:

Working fine here. Resolves to 198.133.219.25

Works fine for me.

And a 403 Forbidden is a web server error, not a resolution error if I
remember right.

What does DNS resolution have to do with 403 web errors?

Works fine for me.

Works for me now too.

Correct. Someone made a boo-boo on some component of www.cisco.com, i.e. changed a chunk of the web server configuration or broke the permissions on some piece of the underlying document tree.

www.cisco.com loads fine from here, but maybe the issue has already been resolved...

Nothing -- but in the world of GSLB where different people get handed different IPs, its important to say which www.cisco.com is working :slight_smile:

Because it might resolve to several different IP addresses or is in the process of changing to a different IP and only one host might have been impacted by whatever was going on at the time.

e.g. if someone says www.microsoft.com is not working, it might help to know what IP they were talking to at the time...

www.microsoft.com is an alias for toggle.www.ms.akadns.net.
toggle.www.ms.akadns.net is an alias for g.www.ms.akadns.net.
g.www.ms.akadns.net is an alias for lb1.www.ms.akadns.net.
