    Default Wowza sending 403 responses

    Hello,

    We are seeing a condition on Wowza Media Server where occasionally we get a large number of 403 errors served. However we're not able to locate these in any log on the server itself. When we look back through the access log, we only find 200s:

    And there are no instances of errors for this particular stream in the error logs for that day either.

    Any recommendations on what could be causing 403 errors on a stream that is constantly running? No modifications are being made to the URL. I should mention this is an older version of WMS, 2.2.4, which unfortunately cannot be upgraded in this environment.

    Thank you in advance.

    I think the best course of action here is to open a ticket with support.

    Please zip up your /conf and /log folders and send them, along with a link to this thread as a reference to support@wowza.com

    Kind regards,

    Hello,

    Some of the information in our config files is confidential, so I'd prefer not to send it. Also does support still assist with these older versions? Thanks.

    Hi Sean,

    Thank you for participating on our support community.

    We understand and appreciate your need to withhold sensitive data as part of our technical support process. This is especially important when troubleshooting using this public forum.

    On this basis, and with consideration of your reference to Wowza Media Server version 2.x, I think it would be best for this request to me managed in a private support ticket.

    Again, please contact us directly by email to support@wowza.com.

    We look forward to hearing from you.
