Browser can render HTML, but Ketarin can't

Recommended Posts

Hi Flo,


I put this in 'bugs' but it could instead be a unique situation Ketarin is not prepared to handle? I'll let you decide :-) and tell me whether Ketarin can be made to handle this.


I use a page-watching service* -- one of the sites I watch is: http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/


A new version is available so I proceeded to set it up in Ketarin for future downloading.


The version info can be scraped for several places on the site, one of them is the download page:



However, Ketarin cannot load that page: An error occured when loading the URL: The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden.


So, I tried simply download the file with Ketarin directly:



Same problem.

AutoIt Script v3: Failed, The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden.



Orbit and FDM are both able to download from that URL. I tried putting the same referrer info into Ketarin that Orbit and FDM use, but no joy on that one either.


Do we also need an option in Ketarin to spoof the browser/agent, in addition to the HTTP referrer, like Orbit and FDM do? Or is this some other issue?


Thanks and regards,

I've been using this service for several years now, outages have been few and the two guys that run answer emails (they're a little slow to respond LOL but they DO respond). I'm just a happy customer and can recommend the service.
