HTTP_REFERER

    I'm using:

    Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFERER")

    And apparently this isn't "reliable" anymore? As in, some
    browsers/firewalls don't allow it? A small block of my code is based on
    knowing what page you were previously on, so this would be a problem. Any
    ideas?

    Thanks,
    Jim

    Some firewalls, like Symantec's, allow you to disable HTTP_REFERER. Like
    Andrew said POST data & querystrings are more reliable.
