Hi,

I am using Apache as a proxy to forward to the slimserver webserver. When
accessing the Server or Player settings I get the following error;

403 Forbidden: setup.html

If I use the actual machine and port as the URL, then everything works OK.
This setup used to work in 5.3.0b but no longer functions in 5.3.0

Does anybody have any ideas where I can look?

Thanks,

-- Stuart

The server does a security check on the referrer before allowing access to
setup.html. This is the likely source of the problem. Maybe the proxy is
interfering somehow.
