SEP 12.1 Forbidden You don't have permission to access /secars on this server.

I have a 2008 R2 server running SEP 12.1.  All was working well until few days ago.  Now when I run the test from any client including the parent server, I get that error.  All the clients are showing the server as offline.  Any ideas?

Make sure you have the Windows Firewall Disabled OR have proper exceptions created for ports.

Could you please pull Sylink.log and upload it from the client machine and server machine to understand the root cause of the issue.

Follow the steps provided in the Article below to collect the sylink.log
