Hi, i have a website written in ASP, and my boss wants to have it so that on the home page, to have a section where he can just type up a message and be able to automaticaly post it within a section of that page.
> The most secure way to do this?

> Ability to send message to Section of Home page, by typing message on local PC, then sending it up.
> Restricted access to this section by IP only.
Put up a form on a page your boss can enter the message required. You can add basic security/authentication to a page that will verify the IP of the request.
Write the form data to a file and use this as an include on the ASP page.
If you have a database accessable, you can also do basic authentication against that and use it to store the user credentials for a login process. You could also use the db to store the new message and a default. FYI you don't need Access or Oracle, you can use a simple CSV file created with Excel or manually.
Are you thinking about straight text input or are you looking for something like an updateable scroller or something else entirely?
