Further Information

User Agent

When packaging, it’s good practise to manually set the user agent used within the toolkit so that we can get a rough idea of which distros are using this software. This is easily done by writing an arbitrary string to <root>/ripe/atlas/tools/user-agent. Something like this is recommended::

RIPE Atlas Tools (Magellan) [FreeBSD 10.2] 1.2

The only limitations to this file are that it should:

  • Only have one line in it (all other will be ignored)
  • That line should have a maximum of 128 characters in it
