The product is great - bought it a couple of days ago. It works well, but I wanted to use REDIRECT instead of REFERER (can't use LINK due to the size of my database, it would that months to change the links).

Anyway, when using REDIRECT for images it works fine, except that some pages show half of the images and the other half is the blocked URI.

It doesn't matter if I clear the cache, restart the server, etc it's like this - but only in some pages.

Using REFERER works fine, but I wanted that extra security level.

Cheers

First of all install latest build 40 that we have released today. To upgrade the software simply run new installation package.
Next, can I see your site and pages you are talking about online?
And lastly using LINK protection method could be not so hard as you may thinking. Could you e-mail to the support service technical details of your site structure, maybe we can suggest some solution.

One more thing, REDIRECT protection is useless for images. For images use simple REFERER protection, it will do exactly same thing.
Certanly LINK protection will work for any media and in any case.

Thanks for the tips. My site is on www.geekzone.co.nz

I've changed images back to referer, and the downloads are redirect (which works ok for these).

Cheers

When updating, do I need to restart the server? The traffic is quite high (> 100,000 pages/day) and this is something I can only do probably on the next Windows Update (January).

Instalation program will restart IIS services automatically. No need to reboot entire server.

BTW your website is almost ideal candidate for LinkFreeze implementation. Just install LinkFreeze and try. I suggest you scheme #12 or scheme #1. Wait for a month and I'm sure results will impress you.

We can discuss about LinkFreeze but I currently use Google Sitemaps and my pages are quite well spidered.

Not sure how LinkFreeze would make it easier, unless other SE coul benefit of that...

Have to think about it :)
