    If you're trying to grab the files from home, your dynamic IP is the cause of the failure. Unless you do some server-side scripting to grab them directly your server, you're out of luck like many of us.

    Keep bugging Linkshare about this ridiculous "security" policy of only allowing certain IPs.

    I believe there is a free service in the US where they can assign you a static IP... I need to dig up what it is though... will check and get back to you

    i live in the UK, and am not sure if i have a static ip address or not, how do i find out?? i use a lan connection from a local company.
    i did not want to put anything down on the form, incase i got it wrong.

    also, how can the $250 be paid? is it taken by credit card??

    and why do we need a static ip address anyway? it seems silly in this day and age!!

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>To protect their merchants from fraudulent affiliates who might give their username and password out. So we all have to incur extra expense so Linkshare doesn't get ripped off.

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Ah yes, but they can *sell* it to merchants as an extra security measure they have in place to protect their feeds.

    How do I even get access to LS datafeeds? Do I have to be accepted? If so, how do I apply? I sent them an email to ask, but it seems to have fallen into a black hole.

    You have to pay them $250 to be able to access their feeds. It's important to pay them for the right to increase their sales.
