Hey,

Does anyone know(Pat,Doug,Stephen) what the variable:

$ENV{'HTTP_REFERER'}

would return on a IPN post?

Thanks

I believe it's empty. I think we wanted to make sure it was not relied upon for anything since it is easily spoofed.

Well, I wrote a small script that would allow sellers to hide the location of their files for digital good sites.

It was late when I wrote my last post. I meant to ask:

Does anyone know(Pat,Doug,Stephen) what the variable:

--------------------
$ENV{'HTTP_REFERER'}

would return on a return(when the user clicks continue after the transaction is complete)?
--------------------

So I have <input type=hidden name=return value=myscript.pl?file_name=file.zip>


Thanks for the help.

Probably your most reliable answer will come from actually doing it.

*sigh* Fine...

I had some bad experience with testing out my scripts.
Just because I had frequent purchases of .01, the credit card company decided to try and protect the card by canceling it. Luckly it only took a 10 minute phone call.

Just thought maybe I could skip the hassle.

Can you populate your account with $1 or so?
