Looking for information about user agent: Microsoft BITS/6.6
- Hey all-
We are seeing a HUGE amount of requests coming from a user agent identifying itself as
"Microsoft BITS/6.6". The problem is the ratio of total requests to unique IP's is staggering.
Like worse than anything we've seen yet. It appears to be hitting a few popular video
podcasts we host. Searching the web right now looking for more information about what
agent/application or aggregator site this could be. If anyone has any info, please post.

obsessive response to this issue :)
1) You know that this isn't a Microsoft specific issue, right? I'm
seeing a lot of 206 response
codes for PSPRssChannel-agent/1.0.0 libhttp/1.0.0 too.
2) So we can keep some of the more impenetrable geekery off this list
I've started a mailing list
for hardcore podcasting tech:
It's a place where we can talk about servers, clients, protocols,
XML, RSS in a robust way
without polluting this list.
