    401.3 is unrelated to URLScan. It means "Access is denied by ACL", meaning
    the ACL on the resource searchlt.idq has changed such that the authenticated
    user that is accessing the resource doesn't have read permissions to it.

    You want to check:
    1. vdir containing resource uses what sort of authentication -- anonymous,
    basic, NTLM, etc
    2. who are you authenticated as when you request the resource -- if
    anonynmous, it is IUSR (unless you or FrontPage otherwise configured it);
    otherwise, then it's the identity you're logged in as, if both client and
    server are in the same domain
    3. What are the ACLs on the resource itself and the ISAPI DLL that handles

    All three must align to or else 401.3 can result.

    I have just install URLSCAN in my win2k server.
    I have used the frontpage website search component in my
    website. This component uses the indexing service.
    When I tried to access the page
    I get this error msg:
    HTTP 401.3 - Access denied by ACL on resource
    Help please... I have tried removing URLSCAN and
    reinstalling my IIS and this error still exist!
