    hi,
    you have to use this code :
    <?
    header ("Location: http://localhost");
    ?>

    Hello,

    Since this is a cab file, i don't think you will be able to modify it.
    Why don't you put the cabs outside the doent root? there was a
    discussion on doing something similar just this week on this very list.

    If you insist on having the stuff on the doent root you can use
    ..htaccess files with the appropriate allow / deny directives. but i have
    a hunch you may be on windows :-)

    best regards
