Yes: by default httrack respects robots.txt rules.

site?
Change the browser identity in the options (Set Options / 
Browser ID / Browser "identity") and disable robots.txt 
(Set Options / Spider / Spider), BUT also setup reasonnable 
download settings (bandwidth AND connections) : 

Set Options / Flow Control / Number of connections: 2
Set Options / Limits / Max transfer rate: 10000

I repeat: don't override default robots.txt and/or user-
agent settings without changing bandwidth and limits 
settings, or you will risk bandwidth abuse and server 
slowdown.
