Hi ,

I am trying to initiate a simple scan with an url which is like "".

Due to security reason i am not sharing exact url. scan is completed but when i see site map result of report i see 403 status code the url. which means scan did not happen.

How to resolve this

    First of all, the & character has a special meaning in the Bash shell, if you're using the CLI interface you need to enclose the URL in quotes just like you did here.

    If that's not the issue, I can't know what's going on without access. Try setting the --http-user-agent to a real one like Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT x.y; rv:10.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/10.0, maybe the server has blacklisted Arachni.
