webpage stuff

ok, on my site i have a submit form. once a user has submitted that for i would like them to go to a page to download the program. However i don't want them to be able to just give the link to the download page to thier friends. So how do i set it so a random page address comes up?

Errm - what's to stop them just forwarding the program to their friends?

that isn't the point!!
I would just like to encourage ppl to fill in the form first !

Sounds like a scripting issue. Try this site and hopefully you may find something of value. click here

run a Perl script on the server, one that doesn't allow the download page to be served unless the person comes from a specific url - which could be the form page.

That will stop anyone simply typing the download url into their browser and getting the page. There are literally thousands of Perl scripts available on the web, and the link provided by Amadas is a good place to start looking. You might also take a peek into your webhost's bin - they may have scripts that you could use.
