Subject Re: Can I connect to a vm URL without a password?
Date Thu, 22 Mar 2018 16:22:58 GMT
Thank you Tim -

I was afraid you were going to say that :-)

I was looking at the SimpleAuthenticationPlugin / SimpleAuthenticationBroker, and I have an
idea how to do this.  The one thing I’m not sure about is how I can tell when the connection
is coming via a VM URL - do you have any hints on that?
