Feature Request: Use a User Agent in the HTTP header

Recommended Posts

Our company proxy uses a User Agent white listening method to prevent malicious apps to throttle the internet.

 

The easiest solution for me to use VIPM is a User Agent in the HTTP calls from VIPM.

 

So please add this functionality.

Would just putting "VIPM 2011" (including version) in the User-Agent header field be sufficient?

Yes that would be sufficient (no need to mimic IE or FF or ...), I'm not sure if it's wise to include the version since that would cost more maintenance on your side.
