i need to create a custom web forward to my internal application, running on apache web server port 8000.
when launch, it display a script error


failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden ( The server denied the specified Uniform Resource Locator (URL). Contact the server administrator. ) in


on line


I dont get this error when i access from my existing firewall or access from the internal network. Is there any thing i need to take note of?

These things are best solved whilst we have a support tunnel so that we can help you determine what web forward type fits best and what to do to get it working. Can you give support a call please and get them to take a look for you?

You can try this first though:
1. Try it as a path-based reverse proxy.
2. If that fails, try it as a tunneled proxy.
3. If that fails, try replacement.

If none of these work, we may be able to get it working as a path-based proxy with the addition of a few custom replacements once we determine what is causing the site to fail.
