We need to modify PRTG’s useragent in an attempt to monitor a website performing agent detection.
From PRTG 7’s history: HTTP sensors' user agent can be defined by the user (Registry Key: LocalMachine\software\Paessler\PRTG Network Monitor\V7\Server\useragent)
Current Registry Key: LocalMachine\software\Paessler\PRTG Network Monitor\V8\Server\useragent (currently doesn’t exist) Suggested User agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.1; Trident/4.0)
After reading the history for version 7 and 8, I have no reason to believe that adding this useragent key will not give us the result we expect; however, can Paessler confirm that this is what we need to do in version 8 before executing the change?
Thanks to Paessler for being so prompt & helpful here on the KB.
