403 Forbidden/LWP UserAgent - please help

Hello Tek-Tippers,

I am having a problem accessing an asp.net site and get a 403 Forbidden error with my script. This does not happen to any html type website so I am asking you for help to scrape asp.net site.

Thank you in advance for all the help.

use LWP::Debug qw(+);
use LWP::UserAgent;
use HTTP::Cookies;

my $ua = new LWP::UserAgent;
my $url = 'http://www.site.com/index.aspx';
my $cookie_jar = HTTP::Cookies->new;

$ua->proxy("http", "proxysite:80");

my $req = new HTTP::Request GET => $url;
my $res = $ua->request($req);
$req = $res->request();

print "\nREQUEST-HEADERS\n";
print $req->headers_as_string();
print "\nREQUEST-CONTENT\n";
print $req->content;
if ($res->is_success) {
print $res->headers_as_string();
print $res->content;
} else {
print "\nRESPONSE-ERROR\n";
print $res->error_as_HTML();

User-Agent: libwww-perl/5.833
