Problem to check if an Index Exist using NEST .Net

Hi there!,
Im just trying to check if an index exist previous my query with something like that:

var request = new IndexExistsRequest("my_beautiful_index");
var result = client.IndexExists(request);

But i always get the same response, even with existing indexes.

"Invalid NEST response built from a unsuccessful low level call on HEAD:
/my_beautiful_index\r\n# Audit trail of this API call:

[1] BadResponse: Node: http://bla bla bla@bla bla bla/
Took: 00:00:00.1330788\r\n# OriginalException: System.Net.WebException:
The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden.\r\n
at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.GetResponse()\r\n
at Elasticsearch.Net.HttpConnection.Request[TResponse](RequestData requestData)\r\n#

Request stream not captured or already read to completion by serializer.
Set DisableDirectStreaming() on ConnectionSettings to force it to be set on the response.>

and my lovely configuration its something like that:

var settings = new ConnectionSettings(node);

var client = new ElasticClient(settings);

any thoughts? Thanks in advance :grinning:

It looks like you either have some kind or auth or proxy in front of Elasticsearch, or are using X-Pack Security with anonymous access and do not have authorization to check if that index exists.
