    Error in Downloadinf a file


    by ashapoo_jain ·

    I have this strange error coming up . I have uploaded a .exe file on a NT server using Cute FTP and when i try to access it through a browser by typing the complete path, i nget the following error

    “”HTTP Error 401
    401.3 Unauthorized: Unauthorized due to ACL on resource

    This error indicates that the credentials passed by the client do not have access to the particular resource on the server. This resource could be either the page or file listed in the address line of the client, or it could be another file on the server that is needed to process the file listed on the address line of the client.

    Please make a note of the entire address you were trying to access and then contact the Web server’s administrator to verify that you have permission to access the requested resource.””

    Can anyone help me out what is this error?

      You can’t do it like this.

      The webserver on a computer will point the root web dir to a catalog on that server so when you think you type the full path the webserver will start searching from its root dir and not from the root catalog on the disk.

      If the root dir is pointing to C:\WWW and u uploaded the file to C:\FTP and then you type in, then the web server is in fact looking in C:\WWW\FTP which will not be found.

      If this isn’t your problem then there is someproblem with the assigned user rights either on a share or on the file itself.

      It might also be that the webserver user dosen’t have rights to that directry or file which the ftp service is using when you upload.

      If you are uploading with a regular user it might be so that the webserver won’t get access to the file.

      Check all theese things out.

      Hope this helps.

      Permisions of the file or ACL don’t let you do that. Give the file permisions to be read by anyone in the ACL list, and make sure you’re authorised by ACL to download the file.

      You may only have write permissions on the folder and not read.
