Title: "The request is forbidden" Error
Post by: vince105 on January 23, 2019, 11:28:59 AM
I am getting a `The request is forbidden` error when trying to access the camera using its IP, both through a browser and through an NVR. Any suggestions on what I can do or what triggered this?

I am using the latest firmware 2.00.

Are you getting this by just entering the IP address? This error is usually a permissions error - connecting to a specific .htm page.

If you are just entering http://192.168.0.100 for example and getting this error something is definitely wrong. if you are entering something like 192.168.0.100/Home.htm, then yes sometimes you may get that error if you are not considered logged in.

D-Link US does not sell this camera so I am not sure about specific errors or issues. Hopefully another user or the tech from Canada who is helping you can find out.

I eventually had to reset the camera and set it up from scratch. Not sure what happened; I would get this error just by hitting the IP directly. Thanks for your help.
