The EMPTY user agent is the german stream ripper that won't show anything in the agent field for the purpose of you cannot block it. There is a way from the SHOUTcast server administrator's back door to block these empty agents. I had it done on my station and it is working perfectly.Has anyone seen User Agent **EMPTY** before? I see under "Shoutcast Stream Status & Listeners" a ton of listener with many different ips and they are all connected seconds apart, when I kick them all out they come back on the same way, seconds apart and we are talking about hundreds of connections.
Is there a way to block this user agent? I did tried to block **EMPTY** by adding it to the Blocked User Agent List but it does not work.
