I am trying to set up the proxy for my web application because the request exceeds 2000 characters. I set up the proxy as described in ESRI site. When I run my application I get the error as shown below

Unable to load
http://localhost/proxy.ashx?http://TestServer:6080/arcgis/rest/services/MapLegalDescriptionFunction/GPServer/MapLegalDescription_Function/execute Status:403

I put my web application (one HTML page with javascript api code) and the two proxy files to my development machine's root folder. This machine is XP.

I have Geoprocessing service running  on another machine (TestServer). When the length of GP request exceeds the limit, the application tries to use proxy and that is when I see the error above. This machine is Win 2008.

Status 403 is Forbidden page error.

Appreciate if anyone can help me with this.
