I  have just spent many hours trying to configure this tool to work and keep getting a 403 error.  I am Running MOSS 2007 on Windows Server 2007. I have tried all sorts of file permission checks and re-deployed this to a farm account (even though I don't  have a farm per se - just a single server.)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
