Remote access to the NetWeaver Administrator is forbidden


Hi All,

I have implemented SAP NetWeaver Portal 7.3 EhP1. After installing I am trying to access SAP NetWeaver Administrator through URL :


but getting below mention message :::

403 Forbidden SAP NetWeaver Application Server

Error: Remote access to the NetWeaver Administrator is forbidden. See SAP Note 1451753 for details.

I have referred the mention SAP Note 1451753, but no getting clearly where exactly icm_filter_rules.txt to be placed in the root access of the Portal 7.31 server.

Also no idea where actually the DEFAULT.PFL is located and how to make the required entries as mentioned.

1) add entry in default profile : icm/HTTP/mod_0 = PREFIX=/,FILE=$(DIR_GLOBAL)/security/data/icm_filter_rules.txt

2) add entry in icm_filter_rules.txt : if % !regimatch ...

RegIRedirectUrl ^/webdynpro/resources/sap. com/tclmitsamuimainframe~wd/(.)*$ /nwa/remote_access_error [QSA]

3) restart java stack
