java maskeraiding as firefox - how?
this is a tough one, but theres got to be a way to do it. my program accesses urls, but when it tries google, google says
NO! IM GIVING U A 403!
because google doesn't like automated searches, it only wants browsers to visit google, not java programs.
the way it does this most likely is with the php variable $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']
it tests for the browser type, and if its not one of the major browsers, it returns a 403.
i need my java program to know when it is given this request, and i need to learn how to send back any string i want, because then i can tell google that java is firefox, when its not.
