Need help with this issue, I just start using Indy to do http post to some server.
And I found out that they treat it as a threat to their system because of this User-Agent: Mozilla/3.0 (compatible; Indy Library)

fyi:

Is there any solution to this problem ? Or we can't use indy component for this case ?

You can always change the value of the UserAgent property. It's a
published property of the TIdHTTPRequest.

There is also a global GIdDefaultUserAgent variable in the
IdHTTPHeaderInfo unit.
