Downloading Aircraft

Postby nigelps » Mon Oct 23, 2017 9:35 pm

Hi
I am a newbie here so please don't roll your eyes up as this question may seem really stupid but to me it is important.
When trying to download aircraft from the index all I get get is the standard error message "403 Forbidden". Could someone please explain why I am unable to download any of the aircraft at all.
Thanks

Thank you for replying to my post, which I understand was put into the wrong sub-forum for which I humbly apologise.
In response to the replies I have had; I'm not behind any proxy and I am stuck with windows 10 (wish I could go back to Windows 7)
Kind Regards

When trying to download aircraft from the index all I get get is the standard error message "403 Forbidden".


What index? We have no way of knowing whether you're trying some defunct warez site, the official distribution of 10 years ago, a 3rd party hangar or the current official distribution.

From the Flightgear download aircraft page; http://www.flightgear.org/download/download-aircraft/ this page gives the link "http://mirrors.ibiblio.org/flightgear/ftp/Aircraft/ which is Index of /flightgear/ftp/Aircraft/", when I try to download any individual aircraft that is when the error message is returned as I stated in my first post.
I can re confirm that I am not using any proxy, just plain ol' windows 10 and my WiFi connection.........
I just followed the information on the main website pages

This download site works fine for me (i've just tried five different craft), so it would suggest a problem at your end - something appears to block your access, but it's hard to guess from here what it might be.
