I am running Web Agent, and I have noticed that for the Web Pages which include a dollar sign "$", the target is never reached, and user gets HTTP 404 code in the browser. Bypassing the Web Agent, I get the Web Page. How can I fix it ?


This happens because TARGET is encoded using dollar sign "$" and not hyphen "-". To solve the problem, set the following ACO parameter :

LegacyEncoding to no to cause the Web Agent to use hyphen (-) characters for target instead of dollar sign.

This will solve the issue.
