Subject [users@httpd] 401 error help
Date Tue, 22 Oct 2002 21:26:41 GMT

Thank You!! it works. To all who received a plain-text email AND an email 
with html markup, I apologize.
It took me a while to figure out what the syntax should look like, but I 
got it.
Here is all that I had to add:
<% response.sendError(401); %>

In order to prompt for a password, the browser must receive the 401 status
code as part of the 401 error doc.  Your jsp page is probably not sending
the correct Status: line.
