whitelist not working.

2010-04-01 16:02:04 W3SVC80146013 64.73.234.213 GET
/assets/templates/tsia1/files/secure/field_services/secur
e/bothmembers/research_reports/Preparing_for_KM2.pdf. -
80 - 66.249.68.243
Mozilla/5.0+(compatible;+Googlebot/2.1;++http://www.googl
e.com/bot.html) 404 0 2

I have created a hotlink blocker that does the following:

DIRECTORY    | PROTECTION TYPE | Blocked uri
*secure/     | REFERER        |

I then click on the User-Agents button and add googlebot
to the whitelist.

Is there possibly a case sensitivity issue as Hotlink
blocker will not let me enter Googlebot.

Notice in the above URL that I am getting a 404 error,
because HOTLINK BLOCKER is redirecting all referers that
are not MODX.TSIA.COM to this page if the document is in
a secure/ directory.

Thanks for your help.

SENSITIVE ISSUE.
