Basically, in ASP.NET 2.0 if you are using freindly urls (URL Rewriting) then those pages would Error out when Spiders would try to hit them. There basic error message says
"Cannot use a leading .. to exit above the top directory."
See complete problem here on this blog
My problem is solved by creating seperate browser capabilities files for different groups of spiders.
My event viewer was getting really full and I didn't know why at all. I thought there was something wrong with the way I was rewriting the url.
I've gone from having tens of messages an hour to none so far this hour since I added the App_Browsers folder with contents to all my .NET 2 sites.
