    Default problem with request.servervariables("HTTP_REFERER

    I've never had a problem using this before, but we just got a call from a customer on winxp/ie6 and this is not working for him. I assign the value of request.servervariables("HTTP_REFERER") to a variable and response.write the variable to the page. On any other computer, it works fine, but on his, it is blank. Anyone know if there is a bug with servervariables or if it's just unreliable? Thanks.

    Default In theory it just contains....

    ..the value of the HTTP_REFERER HTTP header. Assuming that&#039;s set, it should be found in the collection...<BR><BR>So if the variable&#039;s blank, either he&#039;s hitting the page directly (when there&#039;s no referer), or his browser isn&#039;t sending that HTTP header. Check the ALL_RAW item and see if anything&#039;s set.<BR><BR>Craig.
