Hi All, Question. If i take the ip address of the spider visiting, then knock off the end if it and make it a class c ip. ( 220.127.116.11 to 204.152.191) then do a search in the database it will flag that its a spider because of the folowing ips:18.104.22.168,22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199, and 188.8.131.52. But Its altavistas translator service! so whats the best way to get past this?
my pseudocode is: function SpiderVerify(ip,UA) 'ip = ip address 'ua = User Agent make ip class C '184.108.40.206 to 123.123.123 check to see if any ips like that in database. flag good for no matches. flag bad for matches.
Wow, Thanks so much, this is what i do: first i grab the ip address and UA. then i also make the ip a class C. now what I do is check it against a sql2000 database and it does this check. is IP a translator yes/no if no is class C ip like any spiders yes/no if no is UA like any spider UAs
This is as thurrow as i can get i think. Anyone else have any better ideas?
