Check your and Cygwin.com's IPs locally and from a web site providing 
DNS lookups and compare with whois lookups.

403 is a server response e.g. folder without {index,default,home}.htm{,l} 
or it could maybe result from a net block DNS BL or RBL provider hit, 
although my checks of eddie.starwolf.com on a few return no hits.

Try {wget,curl,lynx} and different browsers against combinations of 
http{,s}://{,www.}{cygwin.com,sourceware.org/cygwin}/{,index.html} 
(echo above to see the 16 urls) and see what results you get.

Then contact sourceware.org support sourcemaster at sourceware dot org 
to see what their server logs say.
