Hi, I am developing a personal site that hosts my MP3 collection. I have a created a nice db and a couple of servlets/jsp pages that access the files and create a playlist according to some parameters from user (artist=Beatles, etc.). Due to the copyright issues and stuff, I would like to do the following. 1. Assume that my song is in a location called http://www.mysite.com/music/Beatles/eightdays.mp3 2. Assume that my jsp is in a location called http://www.mysite.com/music/index.jsp My dilemma is this. I would like to give access in Tomcat (4.0) in such a way that when I acess the URL in (1) from URL in (2), it should be able to do so without a problem, but When someone directly accesses URL in (1), it should be denied. In other words, a particular directory in my site should be accessible from the links in my own site, but should be inaccessible to direct queries from other sites (external IPs). Ex. Access from IP 126.96.36.199 (my site) to 'Beatles' directory should be allowed. Access from IP 188.8.131.52 (any other site) to 'Beatles' directory should be denied. Is there anyway to achieve this in Tomcat?? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
