Air, that agent looks like it might be from W3.org, like their W3C_Validator/1.64 libwww-perl/5.47
Was Slurp running on the rest of the IPs in that block?

There is some information on that class C in these threads: [ ] webmasterworld.com [ ] webmasterworld.com It's NSlookup is now [cache.bora.net], but I would be wary of anything coming out of that block. Who knows for sure what is going on with the bot on the other side of that IP. Inktomi has a history of playing user agent games, and I wouldn't scratch that IP out of your cloaking script.
btw - that was Air who posted originally.

Very sorry littleman, still getting used to things here. I edited my post to switch names. littleman msg:404262 9:01 am on Nov 7, 2000 (gmt 0)
No biggy Eathan. I took it as a complement, Air knows his stuff.
