Sorry to revive old post, but here are my finding:

When I force my browser to use fake "User-Agent:" header and present
itself as Firefox I can access webpages. This seems to indicate that
some filtering on server side does not accept connection from 'not
approved' browsers - in my eyes this is wrong server configuration.

I am posting this because i have seen somebody else had problem
accessing webpage (can not find the post now). As far as I am concerned,
I fixed it on my side - but it would be good to configure server so it
does not reject connection from user based on User-Agent header value.
