Thread: ASP, PDF Files, and book marks.

    ASP, PDF Files, and book marks.

    I have some PDF files that I want to share with the members of my martial
    arts group.
    I would like very much to track who is looking at what. I can do that
    easily, the
    first time, but I don't know how to prevent people from bookmaking the PDF
    file, and
    bypassing the logging on subsequent returns to my site to view that
    document.

    Is there any way to force people to navigate through my web site to get to
    PDF documents?

    Thanks a lot

    You could serve the PDFs dynamically - meaning, don't put them in your file
    system where everyone could navigate and view them.

    Instead you could have an ASP page that asks for a password, writes
    something to the session object and than "calls" itself. If people would
    bookmark the ASP page, they will always get to the first part of the ASP.
    Of course, you could use the same technique without asking for a password.

    Regards, Oren.
