HTTP_REFERER

I'm using:

Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFERER")

And apparently this isn't "reliable" anymore? As in, some
browsers/firewalls don't allow it? A small block of my code is based on
knowing what page you were previously on, so this would be a problem. Any
ideas?

Thanks,
Jim

Some firewalls, like Symantec's, allow you to disable HTTP_REFERER. Like
Andrew said POST data & querystrings are more reliable.
