Re: [Lynx-dev] HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden when starting Lynx

I just switched the STARTFILE value from to 

I use to have the second site by default with no need set it manually like I 
just did.

The first site is the one giving me the "Forbidden" message when I try to 
access it from my LAN. I try to access it from a different connection and it 
worked. It's strange. I am not interested in this first site, it's just that it 
is the one mentioned in /etc/lynx-cur/lynx.cfg as an example of STARTFILE.

How do you change the send user headers option? I would like to try that anyway.
