1) Open the web site properties in the IIS admin console.
2) Go to the tab that says "Web Site".
3) At the bottom, click the button that says "Properties".
4) Go to the "Extended Properties" tab.
5) Make sure "referrer" is checked.

Hope That Helps,

Also,

Do you use Norton Internet Security / Norton Personal Firewall?

If so, the Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFERER") will suffer from Elmer Fudd syndrome and be converted to HTTP_WEFERER, hence you cannot get that variable.

You need to configure the firewall accordingly to allow your existing SCWIPT to work.


Hope this helps, MikeVirtual
