Block Access by Client Agent - 21.Oct.2008 10:53:52 AM

Our ISA server just got buried by a ton of http requests from a single external address.   The client agent in the log shows "Web Downloader/7.7" - presumbably software to download an entire web site for offline access.  I put in an access rule to block the address because it was really hitting it hard.  

Is there a way I can setup a rule to block future requests from other addresses by "client agent" value?

Thanks

Hi,

check this: http://www.isaserver.org/tutorials/Configuring-ISA-Server-2006-HTTP-Filter.html

You also need to use a network sniffer to get the corrects http headers, if you donīt have it yet.


Regards,
Paulo Oliveira.

It's useless, many clients can specify their agent.
