is there a simple solution to send the true $HTTP_SERVER_VARS["HTTP_USER_AGENT"] to the file to which the uploads are sent as in IU 4.0.x?.
Now it is "Image Uploader" instead of the Browsertype.

best regards

Hello Brend,

Such behavior is a standard feature. We could change it to original browser type as a custom work for you. If you are interested feel free to write to sales@aurigma.com.

Why would this be a 'standard feature'? What is the purpose of changing the user agent? Doesn't it cause ASP.NET security to think that someone is hijacking the session and log off the user and lose all session data? It would appear that we can't use Image Uploader if this is the case.

Hello ipsonr,

This is a standard feature because Image Uploader’s http request is completely independent of client browser. So it is sensible to identify a request as sent by Image Uploader and not by browser.

AFAIK, ASP.NET security is not affected by user agent field.

This is a quotation from HTTP 1.1 RFC: “user agent: The client which initiates a request. These are often browsers, editors, spiders (web-traversing robots), or other end user tools.”
