User Agent for Dynamic Watchlist HTTP/HTTPS requests.

Hi,

Does anyone know if it is possible to specify the User Agent associated with HTTP/HTTPS requests used to populate Dynamic Watchlists?

I have a situation where I can use a variety of browsers to download a list from Malc0de but trying to do this to dynamically populate a Watchlist gives me a 403 error every time.

The only difference the web site can presumably see is the User Agent which is "1.1 Java/1.8.0_40" in the Watchlist request.

I can make repeated browser requests so I don't think it is request frequency causing the problem. I copy and paste the URL that worked in the browser into the Watchlist configuration.

Any ideas?

cheers,

Andrew
