    Default securing file downloads w/asp

    hello,<BR><BR>i have to create a website where people can download licensed software. the website asks for your account name/password. only people w/a valid account name/password are allowed access to the zipped file for download.<BR><BR>the problem i have is i&#039;m trying to figure out how to handle the download part. my first inclination was to save the file in a directory under the authentication page and direct the user(after successful authentication) to a page where they click on the file for download. the problem is, once people know the link for the download, they can give out the link to anyone and people can bypass the authentication page.<BR><BR>anyone have a creative(and secure) way to handle this?<BR><BR>thanks.<BR><BR>-osamu
