protect downloads

Question

larrylar    0

Hi I have a website, where members download files. I want to be able to protect the files, where by a member can only download from two IPs. Example; home or work.

Reason is I don't want members sharing with friends and friends of friends.

If anyone can point me in that direction, it will be greatly appreciated.

:dontgetit:

Thanks

Unless they have static ips it'll be tricky. You could like only allow 2 ips from the same account to download the files within a given time or something.

You can use a PHP script I think for this. As long as you have 2 static IP's. One for you and one for the other it should be ok. I will go look for the script. Might be on www.hotscripts.com. Could you do it with ASP? might be for consideration? Dont know, but why dont u just Password protect the files with just a HTML password standard protection applet? Dont see why not?
