Subject [users@httpd] FPSE Authentication
Date Wed, 04 Sep 2002 19:34:34 GMT
Hello All,

I am running Apache 1.3.20 on Solaris 8 attempting to use FrontPage Server Extensions 2002
Version 5.0. I am also using an AuthLDAP module for LDAP authentication.

Everything at a very basic level works OK. When I try to apply directory security on the document
root directory Front Page will not allow admins to log in.

Out security is such that if you are trying to access from a certain number of hosts or domains
you should automatically be let in. If not, then it should prompt you for a username/password
and then, based on your group, let you in.

OK, to do that I need to have statements such as:
 Satisfy any
 Order allow,deny
 Allow from
 Allow from
 Deny from
 AuthType Basic
 AuthName "Cool Auth Name Here"
 AuthLDAPURL ldap://
 require group access-group

That all works OK - if you don't take FrontPage into consideration. As soon as I put in the
"Satisy any" switch, FrontPage admin access stops working. When I load the admin page, it
prompts for username and password. I get into the main admin page and then try the Virtual
Server admin page. The username and password prompt comes up, but with the Realm of "/" -
not what it should be (it should be the server name). No username or password I know works.

When I turn off the "Satisfy any" switch, everything works OK as far as FrontPage is concerned.
The Realm is correct. It accepts the username and password. But then my directory security
doesn't work.

Does this make sense? Has anybody else had a similar problem? Does anybody know a workaround
or a fix?
