    Default It depends...

    ...ideally you should combine all your business logic into a DLL and then give that to him. You can just instantiate the DLL from the ASP pages.<BR><BR>That DLL can then have some licensing built in, which he has to return to you for activation (or something)... Or it could "call home" every now and again to tell you where it&#039;s being used...<BR><BR>Basically, if you give him plain ASP, then even if you put in some licensing code, he&#039;s going to be able to delete it and run the ASP without it... If you put it in a DLL then you can stop the DLL from running without a license key...<BR><BR>Craig.
