Sitecore Rocks web Service 403 Forbidden error


Getting a ‘forbidden’ message when trying to connect to my local site via Sitecore Rocks
Whenever we started getting the error: (403) Forbidden error message when trying to connect from my local development instance to connect the Sitecore Rocks web service, we need to fix this issue only by allowing the access to the folder as anonomous.

Error
The HTTP request was forbidden with client authentication scheme ‘Anonymous’. The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden.

How to do that
Every Google page I hit says that it’s likely caused by the WebServices directory not having anonymous access enabled in IIS.

Open web.config and add below section

<location path=”sitecore/shell/WebService”>
<system.web>
<authorization>
<allow users=”?,*” />
</authorization>
</system.web>
</location>
