When running a LOAD CSV Cypher statement, for example

LOAD CSV WITH HEADERS FROM "http://10.12.1.2/Neo4j/cities.csv" AS row WITH row create (c:cities {name:row.city});

whether through bin/neo4j-shell or the browser at http://localhost:7474 this may result in an error as follows

 Couldn't load the external resource at: http://10.12.1.2/Neo4j/cities.csv. See debug.log for more details, reference 8a28b268-948d-43fa-8d6d-b1afb0130276

And the data/graph.db/messages.log (2.x) or $NEO4J_HOME/log/debug.log (3.x) will include a stack trace similar to

From the stack trace the reference to

Server returned HTTP response code: 403 for URL: http://10.12.1.2/Neo4j/cities.csv

is indicating that the WebServer at 10.12.1.2 received the request but returned status code 403 (Permission Denied).

When a request is submitted to the WebServer, the user-agent of that request is defined as “Java/1.8.0_91”. Below is the single line logging for said request in a Apache WebServer Common Log Format. The last field represents the user-agent of the request.

192.168.1.176 - - [16/May/2016:08:34:15 -0400] "GET /Neo4j/cities.csv HTTP/1.1" 404 511 "-" "Java/1.8.0_91"

In the above case, the WebServer was explicitly blocking any request with the user-agent “Java/1.8.0_91”. Once this was addressed the LOAD CSV command was then successful.
