SiteScope 10.14 , W2k8 Query : Which browser does sitescope uses to connect to Client URL's

Hi,

I am not sure on which browser does the sitescope has by default. my question here is

 

If suppose i am trying to access client web URL which does not support IE6 and below or mozilla 5.0 or below. and if i create a URL monitor it may or may not give correct result. doest sitescope really uses browser to test connection to client URL or does it converts everything into HTMl 1.1 version and retrive encoding as Cp1252 Or does it follows another approach?

 

When i ran URL tool check i get user agent is Mozilla , can i change the default user agent ?

Hi Rithick,

 

You can change the User Agent that SiteScope uses when it tests URLs -- by default SiteScope uses Internet Explorer 4.0. To change this for all of SiteScope, edit the SiteScopegroupsmaster.config file using a text editor and change (or add to the .mg file)the _URLUserAgent setting.

 

To make this change to an individual monitor, edit the SiteScope/groups/groupname.mg file, find the entry for the specific monitor to be changed (it will be delimited between # signs), and add the _URLSuerAgent setting.

Some of the more common alternatives are 

  • For Internet Explorer 6.0, use _URLUserAgent=Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0).
  • For Internet Explorer 5.5, use _URLUserAgent=Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0).
  • For Internet Explorer 5.0, use _URLUserAgent=Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.0; Windows NT).
  • For Internet Explorer 4.0, use _URLUserAgent=Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 4.01; Windows NT).

  • For Netscape 4.6, use _URLUserAgent=Mozilla/4.61 [en] (WinNT; I).
  • For Netscape 3.0, use _URLUserAgent=Mozilla/3.01 [en] (Win95; I).
