ASP HTTP_REFERER different in ie4 and nav4

I want to check the HTTP_REFERER value in a page contained within a frameset and take some action depending on the referer.  If the user has Nav4 then the referer is the page prior to the frameset, if they have IE4 then the referer is the frameset page itself.i.e say user is at page A and clicks a link to page B which is a frameset containing page C, then if the browser is ie4 then page C is told the referer is page B, if nav4 then page C is told the referer is page A.
So, is there some existing way in ASP to find out what the browser is, or do I need to download a component???

You can use this code to determine the browser....

<% Set BT = Server.CreateObject("MSWC.BrowserType")
BType = BT.browser
Vnum  = BT.version
%>

variable BType will give you the Browser Name (IE or NS)
VNum will give you (4 for IE, or 4.0 for NS)

There you go... This is built into IIS3 & 4 so no more needed components...

Cheers!! - only problem Ive found is the my IIS 3.0 server doesnt recognise IE4 or nav4 (the component must be outdated - will have to upgrade component).

No, you just need to download a new ini file.. Check this link to download a new browscap.ini file...

This will update the browsers that ASP can detect.. BTW, sorry for such a slow rsponse... Been REAL busy...
