I use to have a referer directive to force people to pass through a
particular page before accessing files in a different directory using
referer allow from http://www.mycompany.com/thisdirectory/file.html
on NCSA 1.5 (even on 1.3 worked)
A developer moved the site to an Apache server and this doesn't work
anymore. I visited apache.org hoping that v1.2 would take care of this
problem, but it appears that nov even 1.2 understands this directive.
I will accept any recommendations, lights at the end of the tunnel,
patches, scripts, etc that can solve this issue.
