Getting error 403 unauthorized for HttpWebRequest.GetRequestStream

P: n/a
Can anyone tell me what I can do to resolve this error?

This is a screen scraping example which is running on Windows XP Pro, using
IIS-PWS 5.1.

The example code I am using can be found at the following URL:
http://authors.aspalliance.com/damia...x.vb.view.aspx

The failure occurs at line #26, for the "s = req.GetRequestStream()" call.

Is this because I am running this off of a PWS setup?

Thanks in advance for your response,

Excuse my ignorance, but what you do mean by PWS? And what local resource
are you accessing, and is that resource protected in any way?

Cheers,
