  Official Explanation  
     
 
  technical details

Authorization failed by filter. An ISAPI filter does not let the request be processed because of an authorization problem.

(From Microsoft - The HTTP status codes in IIS 7.0)

  Notes  
     
 

"401.4 Authorization failed by filter" is only supported by Microsoft IIS (Internet Information Services) web servers.

ISAPI = Internet Server Application Program Interface

The four hundred series of errors indicate something was sent to the remote web server incorrectly.
