Browser.Crawler

P: n/a
How can I get Request.Browser.Crawler to work correctly? Do I need to
update <browserCapssection of the web configuration file? If yes,
where can I find something that cover all browsers and Crawlers? Thanks

Hello Charles,

Thank you for posting.

From your post, my understanding on this issue is: Finding BrowserCaps for
your individual setups for <BrowserCapssection in Web.config file. If I'm
off base, please feel free to let me know.

1.The answer to your first question is "Yes". You have to provide all the
required information about the Web Crawlers that you want to detect within
the ASP.NET configuration.

2.Through MSDN, We suggest CU to find information on
http://www.cyscape.com/browsercaps.However, there is also a very great
website that collects almost all available browser capabilities, you can
find your information on this website:

Thank you very much for the info. The first link points to a company
that sell a product which I do not need. I just need a XML files that
defines "BrowserCaps" for all major browsers including major crawlers.

The second link points to a web site that mainly talk about PHP. It does
offer files in "Windows Ini format". I could spent hours to convert the
file into XML. But do you know if there are any better places I could
find a XML file?

Thank you very much.

Hello Chares,

You can find a XML format file in the download page of the site.
