It seems you've seen my user agent in your server logs.
ioctl.space is a hobby experiment that involves indexing the IPv4 address space, to help answer a question that came up one night at the pub. It was also a good excuse to brush up on my high-performance C++ network programming.
Nope, not at all. It's more of a market research thing, if even that.
No. I'm making completely safe, plain old HTTP requests on port 8000 only, and should not be hitting your server more than a couple of times for now. I'm also not following hyperlinks, so this is not a web spider.
Probably not, since ioctl.space closes connections very quickly. I'm trying to save on bandwidth too. :-)
It really is just an academic exercise to answer a question. Nothing nefarious. Most likely, in a few weeks, you'll never hear from ioctl.space again. And I really do like C++.
