Symptoms

When attempting to use a WebLogic Managed Server as a proxy using HttpProxyServlet (proxyapp.war), the following error occurs.

Error 403--Forbidden

From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1:
10.4.4 403 Forbidden

The server understood the request, but is refusing to fulfill it. Authorization will not help and the request SHOULD NOT be repeated. If the request method was not HEAD and the server wishes to make public why the request has not been fulfilled, it SHOULD describe the reason for the refusal in the entity. This status code is commonly used when the server does not wish to reveal exactly why the request has been refused, or when no other response is applicable.

Therefore the proxy requests between servers do not work properly.
