Description Struts User 2003-02-04 21:02:48 UTC
can someone advise on how i might send user-agent and referer headers on 

by default, according to logs, the referer and user-agent headers are not sent, 
they show as "-" "-" in http-access.log, some sites don't serve content to 
blank user agents. 

i tried using proxomitron (a freeware proxy utility 
http://www.proxomitron.org/), to specify agent using scrapes provision for 
proxy and proxyport, but still blank referer and user-agent are sent??? this is 
baffling, because when i setup my browser to use proxomitron's proxy, the 
specified referer and agent appear in logs.

also, how might i lower the default 10-minute default before a rescrape?

I added a Header tag that must be nested within the page tag that allows http
request headers to be set.
