Password Protect a file download button

How would I passwprd protect a button I have set up for a file download. I just want to use one password only to do this. I have all your products so what is the solution.

you would need to have a users table in your database, and create a new record with the user name and password combination to access the download page.

Then run the security assist wizard to create the login, logout and registration pages.

you can delete the registration page after the wizard creates it if you like.

The wizard will create a "logged into <your users table>" access rule, apply that access rule to the download page.

Question on database for this

It looks like I will need to create a SQL database just for this In the table I believe I would nee the following in the colmn Name

ID integer
Fullname Varchar(60)
DateVisted Timrstamp
DateDownloaded Timestamp
Emailaddress Varchar(45)
IpAddress

What would I need in the data type to pull the Ip address??

If you have a prebuilt SQLdatabase that would work on your site pleaselet me know and i will use it.
