sohu-search Strange entry in web log BohrMe
These entries in my apache log are strange.
***.***.**.** - - [18/Feb/2005:12:33:26 -0800] "HEAD /index.php HTTP/1.1" 200 0 "-" "sohu-search"
***.***.**.** - - [18/Feb/2005:12:33:28 -0800] "GET /index.php HTTP/1.1" 200 63549 "-" "sohu-search" ***.***.**.** - - [18/Feb/2005:12:33:29 -0800] "HEAD /abcdefghijklmn.htm HTTP/1.1" 404 0 "-" "sohu-search"
It's uses a HEAD to get a known file and then gets it with a GET. Then it uses another HEAD to get an unknown file.
Does this behavior seem weird to anyone else?

/abcdefghijklmn.htm Http Code: 404 Date: Feb 22 18:11:09 Http Version: HTTP/1.1 Size in Bytes: 0 Referer: - Agent: sohu-search
Was wondering about this unknown file as well.
Those IPs you "anonymized" all go back to Chinanet, which in turn point back to sohu.com - a known search engine as seen in the user agent section of the log. Posting those IPs did not violate any section of the posting guidelines.
