[caveat] I've no experience of vDeck
You don't really "log into a control panel" with a "server script", as
we usually think of them. If you're logging in to what I think, then
your script might be _running_ on a server, but what it's doing has
more in common with pretending to _be_ a client.
That's probably because your server, and the Perl(?) web robot script
problem, you might even find it to be an insurmountable problem.
No. This has to be indicated on the client side - there's no header
that says "Oh yes it does" (or similar).
is certainly possible, because everything has to come down to HTTP in
the end. Then find a way to write a script that emulates thse HTTP
transactions. Focus on the transactions and the actuall data being
exchanged, not the way the page looks in the browser.
Yes, that's exactly correct.
In this case using the perl module LWP which can be programmed to send
out whatever headers or content you want.
That's about what I thought. I have the agent set to 'Mozilla/5.0'. I
know vDeck does agent sniffing because it servers up mozilla and
hadn't seen before!
I have another problem though and I'll start a new thread on that shortly.
