Default Request.UrlReferrer.ToString()

The code in the book relies on the Request.UrlReferrer.ToString() line working. However, it seems that quite a few anti-virus software packages such as Norton throw an exception whenever you try to get the UrlReferrer. Does anybody know a way around this, other than disabling your anti-virus software?

Actually you don't need to disable whole Norton Internet Security. You can just disable Privacy Control in Norton. You can still leave your pesonal firewall and antivirus on. Then the web project will run without problem.

However, I only test it on my local machine and don't know what will happen if we publish the project to hosting company and user's client machine installed Privacy Control. If it dose have a problem, we have to handle it in code to prevent it.

Hope this helps!

This is being done on the server, so it shouldn't cause a problem for a hosted site. The request packet is sent from the client to the server, and you can examine this on the server to find out who referred the user to your site.

By the way, hosted sites usually have a ton of free reports to help you analyze this kind of data - including barcharts, etc. It's not likely that you need to do this yourself unless you are hosting the site on your own server.
