I want to be able to have a file on the site and allow people to d/l it but not everyone & their brother. So I figured first off I'd begin by having the link to the file in a password protected page. That's a great start but there's nothing to prevent the password from being passed around. Then I thought I'd have them have to create an account and login to do it, still it could be passed around.
Is there a way where if I make it so they have to create an account & login that I could limit their d/l's of the file to 2 or 3 times at most ?
Then I thought maybe there is some plugin that would auto generate a new & unique d/l link or password and I'd be able to see from the dashboard how many times it'd been d/l'd and even if it'd had come from different ip's.
That's the gist of it. Frankly I don't know if what I want exists but is there such a plugin or method to achieve this ?
