    Hi :)

    I have a big problem with one of my servers and a great amount of bandwidth wasted by the hotlinking. This server is running Apache 2.0 for bring MP3 files, this MP3 files are played by a SWF player.

    Well, in this point everything is OK... I though in stop hotlinking with the typical Mod_Rewrite module and his rules, but in this case, unfortunately, it doesnt work because of HTTP REFERERS.

    I tried block every petition without HTTP REFERER, but it affect some browsers...

    Someone know a module, server or way of fix it?

    If it cannot be fixed with the traditionals methods, perhaps could be possible fix it using PHP code.

    I have another problem; This server cannot use authentication or login for play MP3 :(

    Any suggestion is appreciate!

    Thanks in advance
