    HTTP Referer


    I'm trying to "lock down" a CGI script by compiling a list of trusted domains that are allowed to call it. Unfortunately, while this works perfectly on the fixed web, I cannot find a way to get the HTTP Referer information when the script is called from a WML page. I am using the POST method and have switched sendreferer to "true"...all to no avail. A quick test script (designed to show all environment variables) still shows the HTTP referer as blank. Anyone got any ideas please?

    The answer is, the 7110 doesn't send the referrer page/deck in the HTTP header, but the toolkit does.

    WAP provides access control through WML, you should use this in preference to any server-side scheme you may cook up.

    Access Control is covered in the 1.1 WML specification. However,
    it is *not* a secure access control method suitable for m-commerce applications.
