Hi,

I'm writing this piece of code that is meant to spider a particular page of a website:

PHP Code: [ Select ]
 
<?
 
$url1="http://www.microsoft.com/security/articles/onecomputer.asp";
 
 
 
$handle = fopen($url1, "r");
 
while (!feof($handle))
 
 {
 
   $buffer = fgets($handle, 4096);
 
print $buffer;
 
 
 
}
 
fclose($handle);
 
 
 
?>
 
 
  1.  
  2. <?
  3.  
  4. $url1="http://www.microsoft.com/security/articles/onecomputer.asp";
  5.  
  6.  
  7.  
  8. $handle = fopen($url1, "r");
  9.  
  10. while (!feof($handle))
  11.  
  12.  {
  13.  
  14.    $buffer = fgets($handle, 4096);
  15.  
  16. print $buffer;
  17.  
  18.  
  19.  
  20. }
  21.  
  22. fclose($handle);
  23.  
  24.  
  25.  
  26. ?>
  27.  
  28.  


The problem is that this only works with some pages, the example above doesnt work, i get "We’re sorry, we were unable to service your request. As an option, you may visit any of the pages below for information about Microsoft services and products.". Pages such as http://www.microsoft.com/ do work however.

Why is this?

Thanks in advance,

Ok...i'm feeling pretty stupid...the acronym RTFM springs to mind...

For anyone who cares:

PHP Code: [ Select ]
 
<?
 
$url1="http://www.microsoft.com/security/articles/onecomputer.asp";
 
ini_set('user_agent','MSIE 4\.0b2;');
 
$handle = fopen($url1, "r");
 
while (!feof($handle))
 
 {
 
   $buffer = fgets($handle, 4096);
 
   print $buffer;
 
}
 
fclose($handle);
 
?>
 
 
  1.  
  2. <?
  3.  
  4. $url1="http://www.microsoft.com/security/articles/onecomputer.asp";
  5.  
  6. ini_set('user_agent','MSIE 4\.0b2;');
  7.  
  8. $handle = fopen($url1, "r");
  9.  
  10. while (!feof($handle))
  11.  
  12.  {
  13.  
  14.    $buffer = fgets($handle, 4096);
  15.  
  16.    print $buffer;
  17.  
  18. }
  19.  
  20. fclose($handle);
  21.  
  22. ?>
  23.  
  24.
