    Protection of ASP files on Server

    I was wondering if it was possible for someone to use the many, readily available site download programs to download entire websites including ASP files and Access databases?

    How can protect my valuable ASP components on my server?
    Does SSL play a role in this?

    thanks.

    ASP files won't be downloaded, just the resulting stream. A request for an asp file will cause it to be parsed, not downloaded. Access databases won't be visible to the outside unless you have the actual path to it in your HTML, so that shouldn't be a concern either, as long as your site isn't easily hackable via easy tricks like SQL injection attacks. Check out the sticky at the top of this forum "Validate Your Input"
