Hi Francis,

Thanks Francis for the email response. There are two servers {} blocks one
with *listen 80 default_server* and the other with *listen 443 ssl* I am
running the website on port 443 and added the below in the server block
with listen 443 ssl. It worked perfectly. Thanks a lot for pointing the
issue and appreciate it.

location ^~ /web.config {
> deny all;
> }


Best Regards,

Kaushal
