403 errors on Project Gutenberg

Message 1 of 3
(1,748 Views)

Never had a problem when I had VZ DSL.  Now with FIOS, cannot access much more than opening page at www.gutenberg.org due to 403 errors.  Same result with Firefox and IE (current versions of both).  I tried temporarily shutting off the router's firewall - no help.  Same result with my Kindle, so I suspect the problem is not with my PC's configuration.  Search of the web provided no help.  Anyone experience the same problem and found a solution?

Unfortunately I cannot provide any solution. As a long-time FiOS user with Firefox I just followed your link and browsed around the site clicking on probably 15 different links and every one worked just fine. Since you experience the problem with multiple devices I agree, it is probably not your PC configuration.

 

About the only thing I can suggest would be to force getting a new IP address and see if anything changes. Probably the easiest way to do this is to turn off your router for 30 minutes or more, maybe overnight, and then try to access the site again.

 

Maybe someone else will have some other ideas. Sorry.....
