Hi all,
I want to post a simple ASP Cloaking Script online at some online site. Don't know which yet cause have not looked around too much yet. What I want to ask you all is if any of you have any ideas where I should send this to. It's more like a small tutorial explaining how and why this Cloaking script in ASP works and the pluses and minuses:)

I think a discussion of cloaking using ASP would be interesting circuitjump, but I would not want it to become a thread where people just pick up the script and ask where they can get IP addresses for it, or a support thread for those that can't get it to work.

Tell you what, would you be willing to discuss the workings of portions of the script by posting code snippets relevant to the discussion and continue along until you have gone through the parts that highlight how it works and the plus and minuses of ASP cloaking. The script itself could be requested via e-mail for those that want a copy of it (if it was your intention to make it available).

I'm interested in the thread, and in the script.
Most cloaking relies on .htacess, and a cloaking script running on asp would be interesting.

Could you start the thread -- and provide your email address so I can get a copy of the script?

This sounds really interesting.

I can definitely get that going. Let me finish up some stuff here and I'll get to posting on here. :)

To anyone who wants the script, just e-mail me and I'll get that going for you. The only thing I request is please email me back any enhancements that you do on the script.

Iíll be back in a bit to post

About 9 months ago, I set up a testing domain and used an ASP script to cloak.

It worked fairly well, though I needed to automate the ability to update the IP database, and that is what lead to the experiment's demise.

It fooled googlebot at least once, which was fun - but I would not rely on it as the most secure way to cloak.

I have since lost it though, but would be interested in getting a glimpse of another ASP script...

Interesting - I have thought of a number of ASP cloaking routes. Will have to do some more testing before I have a definite best route.

It's 2:06 A.M

I'm gonna post something up tomorrow for the ASP cloaking article. My apologies for making you all wait.

Like I said before, it's not a big amazing cloaking script. But it's something from where others can start from.

Nite nite
