The error you are getting, "HTTP Error 403", means Forbidden (see

I have no problems accessing the file
that is causing you the error. I checked the web server's logs and there
are no 403's, so it didn't come from the web server itself.

My first guess would be that you have a proxy server that requires
authentication and the "403" error is coming from there. I would,
however, assume that this would break other repositories as well.

It could also be a firewall issue. If you want to email me (off-list)
the IP address of your server, I'll check the firewall logs at this end,
make sure there are no routing issues, etc.
