    I know how to do simple referrer faking with CPA redirector.. But using that, you can only set your referrer to the website you hosted it. But how these guys accept ANY referrer to fake? :O Is there any php or JavaScript?

    Thanks :)

    It's not too hard, all you do is include HTTP_REFERER header in any request your script does. You can forge this field to be whatever webpage/website you want.
    It can be done in PHP, Perl, Python, basically in any language, that supports HTTP requests.
    If you want more info just google HTTP_REFERER (can't post links yet).

    no man it doesn't work. we can't set http referrer header. it's set by browser.

    they have set the headers like someone already mentioned. also the php script is CURL but they must use proxies for their "in browser" one because if you dont it will only show the traffic coming from the server ip. but for the program you download its easy to change the headers to anything you want. just i cant program so dont ask me.

    look up curl HTTP_REFERER

    Of course you can, You can define grammatically what information to pass on your http header.
