Hello,

When I clicked to download a piano soundfont, I got this message:

403 - Forbidden Error
You are not allowed to access this address.
If the error persists, please contact the website webmaster.


Please help. Thank you.

There are a few possibilities that come to mind...
The most likely is that you need to be a registered member of the website which has the soundfont you want to download.
Alternately (1), The website may actually have a problem. If so contact the website webmaster (They'll appreciate your help).
Alternately (2), If the website is stored on an older server, some browsers will refuse to connect to it, due to obsolete protocols. If so, try a different browser (I.E.: Mozilla or Opera rather than Chrome or visa-versa).
Alternately (3), If the item you want is at an FTP site (Typically for a University), you may be blocked due to not having credentials for the site.

It appears that urls with "www" didn't work for downloading a soundfont and this should now be fixed. Whatever we try redirect now to urls beginning with https://www and downloads are possible.
Thank you for notifying this!
