How to block - Libwww-perl Access in .htaccess?

Hi there,

I’m not sure how to block -Libwww-perl using .htaccess. When I add this code after “RewriteEngine on” line:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} libwww-perl.* RewriteRule .* – [F,L]

I get a 500 internal error (even though I restart Apache2)

Thank you!
