Locking download links to the IP address


Comrade

Recommended Posts

how to implement download links be optionally locked to the IP address (or part of an IP address), for providing a high level of security against sharing? We would first have to take the IP address of the user and then create a script on the download page to verify that the IP address is the same as the user id. We can collect the required info about user IP from the order form when he submit order.

Or you could just change the download limit to 1? therefore removing any problem with sharing.

I would say this is flawed in any case as once it been downloaded there is nothing to stop the person sending to whomever they want

Yes, it possible change the download limit to 1, but sometimes customer may have problem with internet, downloads incomplete or something like this, so we need allow him re-download file. Yes, I agreed, there is no way to stop the person sending file to whomever they want, but the task is another, by locking IP it possible control downloads more handy, this is good and advanced way in any case.
