1000 passwords????


 
samsam Hi I like to ask about how are the Multiple Passwords working?

Does that mean if I use that system that I値l have 1000 copies of my Ebook each copy for one password? Or does that mean I値l have one copy but there are 1000 password to open it?

That is the must confusing subject in Active E-Book Compiler. I read that the password don稚 store in the book so where it will be store.

I hope I値l have clear and understandable for my questions.

Thanks

Alaska Sam -

Sorry for the wait. I try to wait for the authority(ies) to answer before throwing in my two cents worth, but it's awfully quiet here lately.

Your ebook will open to a possible 1000 passwords, but only one will work on any given machine. The ebook starts, reads your hard drive id, and requests the specific password number (say, password #453) that will open the book on that machine.

Only you possess the list of passwords, and when the user requests their specific number, you return password #453 from the list.

That same ebook will open with a different password on someone else's machine, and the passwords cannot be passed around.

Clear enuff?

samsam I知 still confused; please tell me if this scenario is correct. If I make my book with 1000 passwords then 2 customers download the same book and I値l gave them the same password so they will open the 2 books with same password, and so on, with each new customer can use the same passwords even if I have 1000 passwords.

I知 still finding this thing of 1000 passwords hard to understand. At any way thanks for your answer.

Alaska Hi Sam -

Ok, two customers download your ebook, and decide to buy it.

The ebook looks at the user's hard drive id, and based on that unique id, picks a number from 1 to 1000.

Each number from 1 to 1000 corresponds to a unique password.

The book on customer #1's pc might ask for password #213, which might be, for example, D9W0053A.

The same book on customer #2's might ask for password #731, which might be, for example, 0V3KM584.

The users may try to share passwords, but they can't. The user's password won't work on other machines (or at least, there's only a 1 in a 1000 chance that it work on their neighbor's machine).

People can pass around the protected ebook, along with their own password, but it won't work on other machines until they purchase and enter their own unique, legitimately purchased password.

samsam Hello Roger,

For first time some I get the logical answer. Why they don稚 speak that on the help book that comes with programs?! I知 very thankful for your help. I understand now how the 1000 passwords are working on customers PCs. But I still have more questions, here is the first:

How shall I know about what password the ebook needs? And shall the customers know about the number also?

Now I think, if I can put script in the book to send contact a script on my site to have the password and the access is protected by specific system to let only those whom paid to pass. I read about clickbanck but I don稚 use it now. I want to work with papal for the moment. I found it hard to make purchase page and thanks page for each password, I want to work with 1000 passwords with one thanks page and with paypal. I hope that possible.

Thanks again for your help.

Alaska Sam -

Yes, that is an excellent idea. There are several ways it could be done, and I suspect you could find a good one.

You can get the password number manually, or programatically:

When you click on the password button, a dialog box pops up that says 'Enter password ____ for this ebook.'

There is also an Activ variable, {p} . Your help manual says this about it:

"{p} Indicates the number of the password that is used to unlock this E-Book. If no passwords are present, this will be expanded into an empty string. "

some other helpful variables you can use are:

"{iscorrectpassword}
1 if the correct password has been entered,
0 if not.

{ispasswords}
1 if there are passwords in the E-Book,
0 if not.

{user} The 5 digit user ID of the current user. "

cool, huh? Sunil did a very nice job building it...

samsam It痴 look good, but I need more information about that subject. I知 working now to understand the paypal procedures and I値l try to integrate it with my site. I have 3 things I need to deal with:

My book.
My website.
My account with papal.

The big question is; how I can put all of these 3 things into one system. I知 learning Perl now so I hope that I値l find the proper way. I値l do more search and I値l ask again soon.

Thanks for your help.

EBookCompiler samsam

There is a tutorial for ClickBank here
www.ebookapprentice.com/sell/cbpassword

There are also some PHP scripts for ClickBank atwww.ebookcode.com(scripts section)

Now you might be able to adapt that for PayPal, or at least the general idea

Or if you prefer to use a ready-to-go script, there are a number available.  Search for old threads on this board containing passwords.

The ones I specifically remember are:

1. EBookCompiler APS (should be able to find old threads on this board about this)

2. Hyperlock (again has been discussed on this board before)

3. There's a perl script, that somebody wrote and sell via clickbank. I forget the name, but know it was mentioned in the newsletter. Check the board announcements page, and scroll thru all the old post (maybe use Find in your browser to search that page for Passwords)

samsam Thanks for you Sunil for these info. I値l look to find more about these scripts. And I値l look for clickbanck after I値l start my business, I値l use more ways for paying to give my customers more options.

One more question about the 1000 passwords, who possible for me to know about the number of the password of each book when my customer start the ebook on his PC? Is there any way to make the book to contact specific script in my site? I知 thinking to make that signori:

When my customer start the book for first time, the book will active a script to send a request to my website to ask for the password with the number. Then my site will enter the password automatically in the book so the book will be open automatically in same time when every thing is correct. I want the customer to enter his email account that he used to make his purchase to confirm that he is a customer. Like that my customer need just to type his email account only, so he will know nothing about the password or any thing else.

I知 learning Perl for the moment to make that system with Perl scripts. I read that active complier support some scripts. So in your opinion, do you think that system is possible?

Thanks again for your time.

samsam Hi every body,

I would like to use the active complier to make my books. But I have one last problem and I hope I値l find the answer for my problem here. I don稚 have my own connection to access the net so I知 using public shops (internet caf). I download the program in one shop then on CD and I installed it on my PC. Now I need to register that book. I値l try to do it like this:

I値l copy my user ID then I値l pay money by using any PC in any shop, when I have the registration key I値l copy it and I値l use it in my PC to activate the program. That means I値l do all that without connecting my PC to the net.

I would like to know if this possible, and look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thanks

EBookCompiler >One more question about the 1000 passwords, who possible for me to know about the number of the password of each book when my customer start the ebook on his PC? Is there any way to make the book to contact specific script in my site?

This is what the {p} variable is for

Seewww.ebookapprentice.com/sell/cbpasswordandwww.ebookcode.com's script section for example

It would be a really problem if you are going to be switching PCs to this extent, as I said in the email

myanh How you can get that HDD ID number. Can you tell me how is the whole selling process works. As I understand, at first, customer pay you to have the right for download your ebook into his PC. Than you'll send his a password. But how do you know the HDD Id number. Does your ebook collect it end send to you?

Posted on: 2:34 pm on April 11, 2004
EBookCompiler For passwords, the recommend (but not the only) process is

1. Customer downloads a free trial version

2. Trial version has some password protected pages

3. Customer clicks a link on one of these pages, this is where {p} comes in, it passes the password id to your site

4. You sell the customer the product and give them the password corresponding to password number {p}


For #3, see for examplewww.ebookapprentice.com/sell/cbpassword


Posted on: 6:59 pm on April 11, 2004
myanh So your ebook does send you the Id? I mean that Active ebook compiler put this feature on every ebook it complied?

Posted on: 3:07 am on April 12, 2004
EBookCompiler Yes it does (or rather can) but you have to tell it to.  See Passwords section of our Help
