Is NeoLoad actually using a browser instance to make server requests?

Hi All,
Is NeoLoad actually using a browser instance to make server requests?
I am new to neoload and trying to understand as how the requests are made to the server. After the recording is completed , in the Init/Actions/End containers I only see the URL , server hostname and Login commands captured. Nowhere I could see any mention about browser to be used. Hence this question.
But, while I am trying to load test my siebel application, I am getting some known siebel errors which usually occurs when we try to open more than one siebel session from the same browser.Can someone please clarify ?

Error received from Siebel server:
Message: A Siebel error message was sent by the server. Details: You have initiated a Siebel session while another Siebel session is currently active. Please choose the option that applies to you.

Hi, by default when you run a "Check UserPath" the local load generator sends the http request to the server. The user agent string used is that of the recorded browser so as far as the server is concerned, it is IE, Firefox, etc. This may be a correlation issue, have you run the Siebel framework rules in the post recording wizard?

Did you variabilize your login? The error seems related to the fact to have two virtual users logging with the same account.

You should use a CSV variable that lists all your account. See the related tutorial: https://www.neotys.com/documents/doc/neoload/latest/en/ht...

Hi Neil,
Thanks for clarifying.. I am checking on the framework rules. I will update in this forum if it fixes my issue.

Hi Christophie,
Yes, the login information is added as a variable. I have a CSV with 10 test login ids/pwds. But still the same error.
