Unable to call external rest web service in summer 12 pre release

Hi All,


Today when I tried to test a piece of code on summer 12 pre releaser org which is actually working on spring 12 release I am running into issue.

This piece of code call a external rest web service and prints response to debug logs.


I am constantly getting the following error in response body.


System.HttpResponse[Status=Forbidden, StatusCode=403] <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" ""> <HTML><HEAD><META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"> <TITLE>ERROR: The requested URL could not be retrieved</TITLE> <STYLE type="text/css"><!--BODY{background-color:#ffffff;font-family:verdana,sans-serif}PRE{font-family:sans-serif}--></STYLE> </HEAD><BODY> <H1>ERROR</H1> <H2>The requested URL could not be retrieved</H2> <HR noshade size="1px"> <P> While trying to retrieve the URL: <A HREF=""></A> <P> The following error was encountered: <UL> <LI> <STRONG> Access Denied. </STRONG> <P> Access control configuration prevents your request from being allowed at this time.

And also I tried to use different rest web services and for all of them I am getting the above error. But when I tried to call Google rest apis everthing is working fine.


Any idea why I am getting this error on summer 12 pre-release org?


Thanks in advance for your help!.





Hi Naren,


Were you able to resolve this issue?

This came up again in Spring '14 with code running on a pre-release org ''.

See HTTP Callout Problems in Spring '14? (

"You can't call out from a pre-release org, since the security rules are different from our production/developer environments."

"pre-rel doesn't have the same internet access as production, you are being blocked by the pre-rel outbound proxy"
