I am trying to access the sandbox using https://apitest.authorize.net/soap/v1/Service.asmx.
When I access it from a web browser window the interface seems to work.
However when I try to access it from inside Visual Studio as a service reference, or using Microsoft WCFTestClient tool, I alway get a 403: Forbidden status.
The production api https://api2.authorize.net/soap/v1/Service.asmx seems to work from all the interfaces including the browser, visual studio and wcftest client.
Does anyone know what the issue might be accesing the testapi from visual studio?

@jmazo Are you able to capture all the HTTP data being returned, including headers and body?
Specifically, there should be a Reference # given after the HTTP error, which we could use to troubleshoot the issue.
If you can't acquire that, the HTTP headers and a timestamp for the request(s) would be helpful. But the Reference # would be of most help.
