I'm getting an error message when trying to access one of the sites...
The main reason for this is that there is software on your computer that is filtering/replacing/stripping or blocking HTTP Referer information in the header of the URL. RotoPass needs to pass this login referrer information to the partner sites to authenticate a session. The main culprits that are blocking the HTTP Referers are software based firewalls and advertisement and pop-up blockers. Below are examples of software programs that are known to cause such problems. Keep in mind this is not an exhaustive list of software firewalls and ad/pop-up blockers so if you have these types of programs on your computer and they are not listed here they are mostly likely what is preventing you from gaining access to the sites. We would like to hear from you so we can add problem software programs to our lists.
|Software Firewalls||Ad or Pop-up Blockers|
|Norton Internet Security||Ad-aware|
|Norton Personal Firewall||AdSubtract Pro|
|Windows XP (Built-in)||WebWasher|
|McAfee Privacy Service||Spybot|
|Proxomitron||Surfer Protection Program|
To find out if you have these software programs installed on your computer visit your computer's Control Panel and double-click Add/Remove Programs…you will see a list of all the programs on your computer. Please DO NOT REMOVE the programs. Just go here to find out what software programs are installed on your computer.
If you only have a software firewall it's a matter of configuring it properly to add RotoPass and the partner sites as "trusted" sites.
There are hyperlinks in the firewall list above for the software programs that have online instructions to correct this particular problem. For programs without a hyperlink you will have to refer to the owner's manual or user guide to configure them properly. Search the manuals and guides for "HTTP Referer", "Referer" and/or "Private Header Information" for the solution. Your goal is to allow, enable or permit these HTTP Referers for each of the three sites above.
If you have a software firewall and ad and/or pop-up blocker... chances are it's the firewall. Launch the firewall application and disable, or turn off the firewall protection. Go back to RotoPass and try accessing the partner site you couldn't access previously. If you can get access to the problem site then it's definitely the firewall. Go back to the firewall and enable, or turn on the firewall protection and configure it to permit HTTP Referers on each of the three sites listed above.
If you still can't get access to the problem site with the firewall turned off, or you don't have a software firewall program, it might be the ad and/or pop-up blocker on your system. Enable the firewall, if applicable, and disable the ad or pop-up blockers one by one and check RotoPass and the problem each time to isolate which program is blocking, stripping or replacing the HTTP Referer. Once you identify which program is causing the problem, refer to the owner's manual or user guide to configure it to allow these Referers to be passed in the URL header.
For you spelling bee fanatics, "Referer" is a misspelling that somehow became a codified part of the HTTP protocol…that is why it is misspelled when being referred to.
