Error trying to fetch more than 100 items

We are using an on premise find solution. We get the following error on our production server, but the same query and database works on our test environment. Does anybody know what could cause this?
The index is set to return 1000 items. Could this be some kind of setting on the find server itself?

System.Web.HttpUnhandledException (0x80004005): Exception of type 'System.Web.HttpUnhandledException' was thrown. ---> EPiServer.Find.ServiceException: The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden.

You should be able to increase 'max_search_size' config entry to 1000 on the server.
If it's not possible your Find on premise might be very old.

Do you know in which config file this should be set?

This was resolved by setting the max_search_size to 1000. This was choosen when the index was created, but did obviously not get registered.

This is possible to do directly on the index (thanks BV Network). 

Further runtime settings are stored in a special `@admin` index, mainly for use
by the `es-proxy` service. The settings are normally viewed and adjusted through
the web index admin interface, but can also be accessed directly:

    $ curl -XGET "http://localhost:9200/@admin/_search?pretty"

And even updating the relevant `key/_id` document directly:

    $ curl -XPOST \
    > "http://localhost:9200/@admin/key/XXXXXXXXXXX/_update" \

    > -d '{"doc":{"max_search_size":1000}}'
