I use a system on my website that resizes images on the fly. The progam can accept either a URL or a file path.
If I use the URL method the program gets blocked and I'd like to understand why so that I can add the correct details into the referrer or user agent fields.
Looking in the log files I can see the component making the request for the image. It has the IP address of the server but the referrer and the User Agent fields are both empty.
I added ? and also * to the user agent white list but the request still gets blocked.
I have ? added to the referrer white list so I can't understand why the request is getting blocked.
A typical request looks like this:
[DateAndTime] GET [ImageURL] - - [ServerIPAddress] HTTP/1.0 - - 302 294
Thanks in advance :o)
