I'm getting an error message when trying to access one of the sites...
The main reason for this is that there is software on your computer that is
filtering/replacing/stripping or blocking HTTP Referer information in the
header of the URL. RotoPass needs to pass this login referrer information to
the partner sites to authenticate a session. The main culprits that are blocking
the HTTP Referers are software based firewalls and advertisement and pop-up
blockers. Below are examples of software programs that are known to cause such
problems. Keep in mind this is not an exhaustive list of software firewalls and
ad/pop-up blockers so if you have these types of programs on your computer and
they are not listed here they are mostly likely what is preventing you from
gaining access to the sites. We would like to hear from you so we can add
problem software programs to our lists.
To find out if you have these software programs installed on your computer
visit your computer's Control Panel and double-click Add/Remove Programs…you
will see a list of all the programs on your computer. Please DO NOT REMOVE
the programs. Just go here to find out what software programs are installed on
If you only have a software firewall it's a matter of configuring it
properly to add RotoPass and the partner sites as "trusted" sites.
There are hyperlinks in the firewall list above for the software programs that
have online instructions to correct this particular problem. For programs
without a hyperlink you will have to refer to the owner's manual or user guide
to configure them properly. Search the manuals and guides for "HTTP Referer",
"Referer" and/or "Private Header Information" for the solution. Your goal is to
allow, enable or permit these HTTP Referers for each of the three sites above.
If you have a software firewall and ad and/or pop-up blocker... chances are
it's the firewall. Launch the firewall application and disable, or turn off the
firewall protection. Go back to RotoPass and try accessing the partner site you couldn't
access previously. If you
can get access to the problem site then it's definitely the firewall. Go back to the
firewall and enable, or turn on the firewall protection and configure it to
permit HTTP Referers on each of the three sites listed above.
If you still can't get access to the problem site with the firewall turned off, or
you don't have a software firewall program, it might be the ad and/or pop-up
blocker on your system. Enable the firewall, if applicable, and disable the ad
or pop-up blockers one by one and check RotoPass and the problem each time to
isolate which program is blocking, stripping or replacing the HTTP Referer.
Once you identify which program is causing the problem, refer to the owner's
manual or user guide to configure it to allow these Referers to be passed in
the URL header.
If you don't have any of these programs on your computer or you have disabled
or configured them and still can't get access to a partner site then you need to
upgrade your browser to the latest version. AOL users can type in keyword
"browser", then keyword "upgrade". Also, make sure your browser is accepting
first and third-party cookies and its privacy setting is set to medium or
medium-high. In Internet Explorer these settings can be found in Tools>Internet
Options>Privacy…cookie settings are in Advanced. In Netscape these settings can
be found in Edit>Preferences>Advanced.
For you spelling bee fanatics, "Referer" is a misspelling that somehow became a
codified part of the HTTP protocol…that is why it is misspelled when being
