    Default System.setProperty("http.agent"..) appends Java/1.6

    In my JAVA program I set the user agent with
    System.setProperty("http.agent", "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)");

    But I see from packet sniffing that JAVA appends " Java/1.6" to the user agent that I'm trying to set.

    This causes a web page that I am trying to read to stop responding.

    Does anyone know how to get around this?

    thanks,
    William

    Default

    Check the "http.agent" value before set the property. May be somewhere within your application it can be appended, system cannot append that as far as I know.
