Hello Zhenyu,
I understand you're facing difficulties with an HTTP ERROR 403 when trying to access the MathWorks File Exchange website. This error typically indicates that the server understands the request but refuses to authorize it.
Here are some steps you can take to try and resolve the issue:
  1. Clear Cache and Cookies: Your browser may have stored outdated or corrupt data. Try clearing your browser's cache and cookies and then attempt to access the page again.
  2. Try a Different Browser: Sometimes, browser-specific issues can cause this error. Try accessing the page with a different web browser to see if the problem persists.
  3. VPN or Proxy: If you are using a VPN or proxy service, try disabling it. These services can sometimes trigger a 403 error due to server security settings.
  4. Network Restrictions: If you are on a corporate or university network, it's possible that access to certain websites might be blocked. Check with your network administrator to see if that's the case.
To troubleshoot this error, which is often related to permission issues, you might find the following MathWorks documentation on Troubleshooting RESTful API Error useful:
I hope this resolves your issue.
Best Regards,
Asim Asrar
