Subject Apache 1.3 .22 - "advanced" authentication question
Date Sun, 02 Jun 2002 13:21:49 GMT
I've searched the Net, archives and FAQs - can't find an answer or anything
close to an answer for this question...
<Directory "/usr/local/apache/htdocs/someDirectory">
   AuthType Basic
   AuthName "Some secure directory"
   AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache/seeds/sesame
   Require group someGroup
   Allow from except
   Satisfy any
A Perl script fetches HTML documents, alters them and serves them to the
client. In doing so, it makes it appear that the document requests are
originating internally rather than externally. This has the net effect of
bypassing security. I wanted to simply "allow" all local IP addresses
"except" the Web Server, otherwise "require" a username and password. The
Perl script is on one server, the documents are on another.
Any ideas?
Many thanks,
