User Restrictions Question Can't Post

I can't get my head around how I'm to do this...

Need 2 sign-up pages:

A allows certain access, B allows all access, but only to members from a DIFFERENT website.

http_referer doesn't work in IE and there isn't a member number/name I can use to validate.

Is it possible to read the cookie from a different website and make sure it's present for people entering the sign-up from the members area of the other website?

Does anybody have a good way to validate those entering at the member sign-up page are coming from the right website? I think what we worry about is that members will share the sign-up link with friends, who would then get all access meant only for members. You want people to be honest - but they won't be.

I've given up - but thanks. The other company wants us to do work for them, but they are very rigid as to how much they'll help.

At this point, I've done what can be done without any kind of "handshake" on their end.
