SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am getting 403 - Forbidden Exception while accessing a SharePoint 2010 web service. However, the same user is able to access the same SharePoint site with the browser. The authentication used is NTLM. I verified that the "Use Remote Interfaces" option is checked. But the user is still not able to access SharePoint service as a soap service. Can anyone help me understand what could be the reason for SharePoint returning 403-Forbidden exception?
