Here's a clip of the #2 most annoying auto-visitor my site is getting... I know there were some earlier posts about "Microsoft URL Control," but none of the answers were very specific...

I got it visitng under IP 63.210.161.34 (is "63" the official IP code for "obnoxious robot"?)

Here's a log clip for that one:
63.210.161.34 - - [06/Dec/2000:08:49:39 -0900] "GET /post.html HTTP/1.1" 200 3011 "-" "Microsoft URL Control - 6.00.8169"

Any definite ideas here? I sure isn't human.

Hi. If you read my post, and then my reply, you'd have this link.

In this thread, I believe it was redzone who mentioned that Microsoft Url Control is embedded into active x applications that download web sites. In other words, a remote http request utility, and it could be doing anything.

Who knows, maybe it was me? Just kidding. ;)

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Thanks... that one hasn't been back again, so I'm not going to worry about it. (I swear, the more I hear about Microsoft in various places, the more they annoy me...)
