Avoid user agent blocking
« on: August 21, 2001, 02:31:56 AM »
Ever since I've made Opera my default browser I've been encountering more and more websites that decide that only NS or MSIE users are allowed to see the page. This filter and blocklist will make it easier to add sites to the Spoof User Agent filters than can be done with the default filter, since expanding on the URL field is not that optimal. I set Prox to spoof my browser as Netscape 4.75, since this seems to be the one browser all sites will accept.
The filter will of course also work with lesser browsers than Opera.

The filter:

##
## Proxomitron Config File
##
[HTTP headers]
In = FALSE
Out = TRUE
Key = "User-Agent: Fool Opera Blocking Sites"
URL = "$LST(BadSitesList)"
Match = "*"
Replace = "Mozilla/4.75 [en] (Win98; U)"


The blocklist (BadSitesList):

##
## This is a list of URLs (web addresses) that block Opera based on  
## the User Agent string.
##
##
