“909 Application authentication failure. HTTP Error 401: Unauthorized” while downloading Blackberry app to device

After signing and preparing the blackberry application build very properly, I uploaded the build to the server.

Now I try to download the application through my device using BB external browser.

 

If I click on the link it brings me to the download control, but on clicking the download button it pops up a dialog box telling download failed which further leads to a message:-

"909 Application authentication failure. HTTP Error 401: Unauthorized"

 

I got all the new keys and registered all the three keys. I tried preparing the build again but it is not helping. The problem is still there.  Signing process is completed properly.

 

Anybody faced the same issue!!

HTTP 401 indicates an authentication issue with your web server.  Do the links to your COD files require authentication?

Yes, the problem was with server side only. 

 

The server should provide authorization to download from the certain location (folder).
