in reply to Server closed connection without sending any data back

Something to consider: some web servers are "agent sensitive". Check out this doco:

$ua->agent('Checkbot/0.4 ' . $ua->_agent); $ua->agent('Checkbot/0.4 '); # same as above $ua->agent('Mozilla/5.0'); $ua->agent(""); # don't identify
I'd pick something benign like 'Mozilla/5.0' to set your agent's ID to and you may have more success. I've run into this issue a few times...
