Redirect without a Referer

28 May 2006

Seems that Mininova detects your referer when you link to them, so for Metatorrent I needed a way to redirect to their server with a blank referer. I looked around for a way to do this in C# code, which I would have prefered, but to no avail. Still, I found a good solution - a meta refresh tag with your url on will send the client to the URL without a referer. Simple but effective.
