Subject [users@httpd] HTTP Authentication - Domain name
Date Tue, 27 Aug 2002 16:17:26 GMT
	I have been playing around with HTTP Basic authentication using
Apache.  I have this working properly where the user gets prompted for
username and password via the browser.  I need to develop a custom
authentication plugin whereby I can also prompt the user for the Domain
name.  I have noticed this occurring on some sites, especially when

So, my question is, how does the browser know to just prompt for
username and password versus prompting for username, password, and
domain?  Is this happening because it is purely an HTTPS connection?

I can't find anything in the HTTP specification with regard to the 401
response that talks about this.
