Thar Be Your Problem. instead of using a domain name, connect via either 
"localhost" or "" -- both loopbacks to yourself.

and also, 403 means that the server didnt like your request. Try serving 
up a static page and if you get 403'd then you're gonna have to look 
into disabling UAC, which is the first thing you should do, then look 
into disabling the windows firewall. After that, it seems as if you're 
mostly on your own.
