Hi Thomas,

How did you disable the useragent?

I tried -useragent="", but that didn't work either.

That's because there are two checks.  An empty useragent normally sends
a default user-agent string, but there's an additional feature that I
added about a year ago

        2009-05-25 (2.8.7pre.3)

which suppresses that entirely.

There's no command-line option (I'm probably going to add one - was also exploring a problem with my configure script...). It can be turned off in the options menu with this checkbox - but note that the corresponding feature (send_useragent) is normally not saved to .lynxrc:

  Send User-Agent header (!)       : [X]

To allow it to be saved to .lynxrc, you'd add


to lynx.cfg


- Lynx Version 2.8.7pre.6 (23 Jun 2009)
 libwww-FM 2.14, SSL-MM 1.4.1, ncurses 5.7.20090803(wide)
 Built on linux-gnu Jun 25 2009 07:27:29
- FORCE_SSL_PROMPT:YES is being used in /etc/lynx-cur/lynx.cfg to ignore SSL cert issues
- Setting -useragent="firefox user agent" does not resolve the issue
- wget and curl -sk and Firefox work fine

Anyone have any ideas?

I got it to accept the connection by disabling the user-agent entirely.
