By default, when crawling a web site, WebCopy will send a application defined user agent. As some web sites use user agent sniffing to determine what content to send, or block unrecognised agents, WebCopy allows you to send a pre-defined or custom agent.

To configure the user agent

  1. From the Project Properties dialog, select the User Agent category
  2. To use the application defined user agent, select Use default user agent
  3. Alternatively, to apply a custom agent, select Use custom user agent and enter an agent string in the space provided or choose from the list
