Some journals are filtering on user agent eg. AGU:

wget  http://www.agu.org/journals/jd/jd0912/2008JD011697/2008JD011697.pdf -> 403 forbidden

wget -U 'Mozilla/5.0'  http://www.agu.org/journals/jd/jd0912/2008JD011697/2008JD011697.pdf -> 200 OK

Would be useful to use a user agent string in the wget invocation.

  • status changed from new to closed
  • resolution set to fixed
  • milestone changed from EPrints 3.1.4 to EPrints 3.2

Resolved in r4592. Won't backport to 3.1 because this won't be changed in upgrades anyway.
