ASP Forms under SSL

I need to collect course registrations, with cc info, via an ASP
registration form that would operate under SSL. The order info would be
stored in a database that resides outside of the public web directory.
If I write a password protected utility that runs under SSL that allows
the person processing orders to view/print records in this database
under SSL so they can be manually processed, and after printing delete
the cc number in the db, realistically, how secure is this? Host won't
let me use PGP. They don't want to use Paypal, and can't get an online
merchant account because they're considered a high risk business
(travel). What other options do I have? Thanks.

I would say this has about zero security, because once the credit card info is printed all is lost in terms of security.

There's also no value in storing the credit card info in a db if it is simply to be deleted anyway because I see no way to manage a
print job successful/failure.

I have a lot of respect for David Fenton and Allen Browne, but I don't understand why people who know how to write code to completely replace a front end do not write something that will automate the code that implements managing unbound controls on forms given the superior performance of unbound controls in a client/server environment. I can easily understand a newbie using bound controls or someone with a tight deadline. I guess I need...

I can interact with the main form window but I cannot interact with the NotifyIcon. Method 2 gives a object reference...

I have the following situation: Need a user resizable user control. After much trying with user control I came across the idea of hosting the controls in a form marked as not TopLevel = false. This work fine for most cases, allowing the user to resize the form (and controls within the form. The forms them selves are create dynamically when the user drags a node from a listview to a panel (contained in a Usercontrol which is hosted by...

Hi, I have a periodic problem which I am having a real time trying to sort. Background: An MDI VB app with a DB on SQL 2000. I have wrapped all the DB access into an object which spawns a thread to access the database and then displays a modal dialog which allows the user to cancel the task, if it is taking longer than they want, and shows them a display of how long the query has been running so far.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
