Security RSS-Feed Problem

Hi!

I am proud user of geeklog (www.hirntot.org) and I want to stay up to date so I want to use the security RSS-Feed http://www.geeklog.net/backend/security.rss.

I can open it in Firefox and download it.

But when I open it in my RSS-Reader (RSSOwl) I get:
HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden

Do you forbid some user-agents?
Or why do I get a 403-ReturnCode?

Yep. Pure self defense, really. You should see some of the requests we get here ...

Ah, that one. There was a problem with an older version of RSSOwl - although that was so long ago that I don't remember the details. But it earned itself this entry in our .htaccess:
Text Formatted Code
# extremely stupid UA, causing lots of 404s
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} RSSOwl [NC,OR]
 

Well, I've unblocked it - try again now. We'll see if it learned to behave itself ...

bye, Dirk

Thanks a lot mate, it works Smile
If it creates problems again, plz fill this topic again. I will notice it due to the 403 in my RSS-Reader Smile Maybe we can find a solution (or at least create a bug report).

I did actually contact the developers back then (that was in February 2005 and concerned versions 1.0 and 1.0.1). I'll keep an eye on it ...

bye, Dirk
