httpRequest web client?
« on: February 28, 2020, 02:36:40 pm »
Hello everybody.

If I use function httpRequest from simpleinternet what does the website that I am sending request to see about me? Particularly, what web client do they see that I am using? Or is there any other information that could be used to differentiate me from more organic request (ie over normal web browser)?

Secondly, is there way to change webclient for httpRequest?

Thank you for help.

defaultInternetConfiguration.userAgent from the unit internetaccess sets the name used as web client.

Additional information depend on the system. On Windows it uses wininet and on linux Synapse, and they add some more headers. You could send a http request, intercept it with wireshark, and compare the information
