Hi There

I have two web sites a ASP.NET  and an old legacy ASP system.
I want to have a site link that passes parameters in a querystring to the asp website.

My problem is that I will be passing user information from in a querystring I would like to hide those values or make sure that the asp website only exepts calls from the asp.net page.

HERE is the url i am using

<a href="http://legacysite/login.asp?UserID=<%=Session["Docter_Username"]%>&Password=<%=Session["Docter_Password"]%>"  target="_blank">

If there are any other suggestions on how to do this please let me know.

Both systems will be running on SSL

try "POST" to your old asp portal, instead of pass those parameters via QueryString ?

The best way you can do is encrypt your querystring, this method we normally use when we have to transfer pages across multiple framework.
