Here's what I'd like to do. How do you setup the shopthanks.asp page to give the user a link to click to download a file from a secure site? After a customer makes a purchase, the shopthanks.asp page creates a printable reciept that should include link for them to click on to start downloading thier purchase. How do I set that up?

I'm not sure if/how you can get something like that working from another server. But, what you could do is put the files into a secure/non-browsable directory above your www area.

I'd guess that using a different server for the downloads from the site that holds the orders is a non-starter because they should be on the same site (I'd be very worried if we had a site which could download from another site, even if they were both ours)

There are some restrictions, but if you want to deal with those restrictions then you can use this addon for multiple-file downloads, labelling, and other enhancements:
