It is far more likely that the firewall is checking the HTTP method and
rejecting PROPFIND as it is a WebDAV-specific method. I haven't heard of
firewalls checking on User-Agent. They could, but you're just far more likely
to run into cases where the firewall doesn't allow any WebDAV methods. That's
so common, it's one of our FAQs. ;-) -- justin
