I scanned her whole site this WE with threads set to 1, later 2. That
took many hours, but it worked without trouble.
Theories about this:
- Maybe if one starts with "too many" threads, the client IP address is
"penalized" for some time, so it doesn't help lowering threads after
being "flagged" by the server firewall
- A change on her client side (many people do have a firewall in their
router; so do I, and initially it blocked Xenu from running)
- sysadmins are too often underqualified, underpaid and understaffed.
What you get then are people who just try to find a way to quickly close
tickets, instead of taking some time to research a problem.
