Attempt to access http://twin.inet/ everything is OK.
Attempt to access http://twin.inet/doc/ - Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /doc/ on this server.

If I rename symlink `doc' to anything else everything works
mv /home/httpd/html/doc /home/httpd/html/Documentation (or /home/httpd/html/aaa)
and the server allows access.
No, this server is in my private network not connected to the internet.
No ideas.
