Error: "The requested URL is not on this server. The link on the referring page seems to be wrong or outdated."

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
SYMPTOMS
A user attempts to click on the link for downloading the fcdata.zip file but receives the error: "The requested url is not on this server. The link on the referring page seems to be wrong or outdated."
CAUSE
The default website is using a port other than the default port 80. As a result, the download file link does not include the port number in its URL.
RESOLUTION
The two options to workaround this issue are, as follows:

  1. A shortcut can be created on the user's workstation to download that file directly from outside the Microsoft Forecaster application.
  2. Another option is to copy/paste the URL that appears for this file (the link appears in the lower left corner of the screen when the cursor is placed over the download link for the file) in a Internet Explorer browser window and modify it to include the port number.
