What is the ips-agent from verisign ? 

If you notice something like the following in your web logs : - - [06/May/2011:09:07:30 -0500] "GET /ltl-loads/ HTTP/1.1" 200 12885 "-" "BlackBerry9000/ Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/102 ips-agent" - - [06/May/2011:09:08:21 -0500] "GET /ftl-loads/ HTTP/1.1" 200 12885 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:; ips-agent) Gecko/20090824 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4  Firefox/3.5.3"

This is Verisigns IPS-agent bot.  What this does is index your site for verisigns Internet Profile Service.  This is something that they use to provide traffic data to prospective buyers of domains that are about to be expired...

Verisign is in a unique position of running the .com and .net domain name servers and knows when domains will expire.  They are using this information to help sell expiring domains with traffic to bulk domain buyers at registrars such as dynadot.
