    Unanswered: encript URL

    Does anyone know how I can encrypt a URL

    e.g Response.Redirect "http:\servername:81/myapp/"

    when it gets redirected I want to encrypt the URL so no-one sees the servername or any part of the url

    Thanks

    I don't believe this is possible. You have to pass a clear URL to the browser, and it's the browser that displays it. The best thing you could do is use JavaScript to hide the Address bar.
    That which does not kill me postpones the inevitable.

    He is correct; the browser needs to know where to fetch the page from, so it must be clear.

    However; if you have two servers A and B. A being one you don't care about people knowing about, you can write a script to "include" content from B on the page. I.e. either via http get or (not sure about this working cross server) include.

    Not sure if that is what you wanted...
