I was attempting to gauge traffic from a parked domain which was being
redirected to a webpage by the server. I found a solution by ammending
the redirection to include a querystring:
Cheers for your help
> Two things come to mind:
a) Suppose you are redirecting page1.asp -> page2.asp. You can't just type
in page1.asp into your browser address bar, and expect to get a referer on
page2.asp. page1.asp has *no* refererer, so nothing will be displayed on
page2.asp. Instead you need to have a link that goes to page1.asp.
b) It is up to the *user-agent* to send the referer header - some UAs (eg
search engine bots) do not send the referer header to the server.

: Is there anyway of displaying the referrer address or IP of the page if
: the referring page is using a sever redirect. I tried to point traffic
: an asp page and then use response.redirect but I could still not get the
: referring IP/hostname. Is there anyway I can do this?
