    Bot question

    Hey all, I don't know if this is the right forum but I'm giving it a shot anyhow.

    Today I checked my logs and I had an IP who surfed a small block of my site, but not like a human but some pages were requested 3 within the same second.

    I checked the IP, and it comes up Road Runner.

    67.52.241.195

    Can anyone give some advice on how to deal with things like this? Is it a bot on RR side of things for a search engine or?

    Thanks for your time.

    It could be a number of things... is there a particular reason you are concerned about it? It could be a worm looking for vulnerable software, could be a cacheing service, or some sort of spider/bot.

    I didn't know if it was a bot that someone knew of or what.

    That's why I was asking

    If I get a lot of hits from a certain IP I always look up to see who they are. Thus far it's only been all the search engines and my users, this was just not normal so I banned it until I can find out.

    I'm picky

    thanks

    I think you did the right thing...

    ...that IP appears all over this spammed guestbook page:


    w w w. cochems . com / register . html

    (didn't want to link to it from SP)

    Yeah, thought it was something bogus.

    Thanks Stephen.
