Advanced connection rules

The advanced connection rules offers the possibility to limit the number of simultaneous connections to specified servers or URLs.

 

"Pause between checks" can be used if a server allows for example only two requests per minute (the search feature in forums often has such a limitation against automated hack attacks).

 

Advanced connection rules and Check-Macros:

URLs within macros are not recognized, this functionality is based on the bookmark fields "URL" and "Alternative URL". If an alternative URL is entered, then this field is used, URL otherwise.

HTTP-Header

Accept-Language
Lets you configure the Accept-Language entry in the HTTP header (default value is en).
For more information about that header search the web for "HTTP Accept-Language".
