    Securing a File on Webserver

    hello all

    want to enquire whether anyone knows how to lock a pdf file on a webserver so that users can view the file, but not download a local copy

    any suggestions?

    thanks

    Nope.

    If they can view it, they already have a copy on their machine.

    I believe that with some PDF creation programs that it is possible to lock the PDF files down, but this is not at the server level. You may want to look into them, but from what I understand, even if the PDF file has these protections, it's still possible to access the content.
