Subject MSIE and auth. realms
Date Mon, 09 Mar 1998 21:25:28 GMT
Someone in a post to a newsgroup said that MSIE would treat two servers on
different ports on the same host as being the same server, ie. cached auth
for a realm on a server on one port will be sent to a server on another
port requesting that auth.

Combine that with a public (eg. University) system and IE caching
passwords on disk, and you come up with auth being useless.

Is what they said true, or are they doing something wrong like having both
saved to disk but not realizing it?
