Symptoms

When attempting to test modplsql by using fnd_web.ping, the HTTP status code 403-Forbidden is returned:

For example, the following URL:
 
http://hostname.domainname:port/pls/XXX/fnd_web.ping

will return the following error:

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /pls/XXX/fnd_web.ping on this server.

Changes

The application of any recent patch that upgrades trusted.conf will restrict access to fnd_web.ping.  Various versions of trusted.conf over the years restrict access to fnd_web.ping more and more securely.
