WebClient.DownloadFile & Error 403

Hi all,

I have a problem with downloading files by using

WebClient wc = new WebClient();
wc.DownloadFile("http://some_url.com/some_file.gif", "some_file.gif");

This returns the error 403 from the server but I can access this files
from Internet Explorer without any problems. To further complicate
matters this error shows only up at work but works on my home PC.

I even wrote a small JAVA-app which can download all the files without
a problem at work. So what's so special about the WebClient
implementation ? How can I predict its behaviour ? and above all, why
do I get this 403 error.
