Subject Re: [users@httpd] getRemoteUser null
Date Fri, 02 Jan 2004 22:45:15 GMT
Please disregard the section between the asterisks. When it came up in my mailbox with half
dozen Tomcat mails I thought it was posting to the Tomcat list, and I'd really like to solve
this if anyone has a clue.

I certainly did not expect to see this here. I thought it was different list and a different
audience.

This is not entirely off-topic because a partial fix involves Apache configuration.

Before stumbling on this partial fix all my JSPs and servlets returned getRemoteUser null.
This fix works for JSPs but doesn't help much for servlets. It's also posted on the Tomcat
list and two Novell lists. I'll take help anywhere I can get it.

Apache2.0.48
Tomcat4.1.29
mod_jk1.2.5
jvm1.4.1_02a 

Does anyone have any idea why a JSP referenced by name in a url would return getRemoteUser
= null and the same JSP referenced through DirectoryIndex in Apache2 would return getRemoteUser
= expected user name.

Example:
http://serverAddr/DisplayUser.jsp returns null

In Apache conf
DirectoryIndex DisplayUser.jsp

http://serverAddr/ returns DisplayUser.jsp with user name
