Subject [users@httpd] dealing with IE's block on URLs with password/username
Date Mon, 16 Feb 2004 12:11:00 GMT

Microsoft has released a security patch for IE that blocks the use 
of this syle of address:-

For various reasons I have used this as a means of giving access 
to  non critical websites that are normally IP protected via an 
external website that requires a login.  This website has links 
containing a generic password  that means the user  does not 
need to type in or even know a password to access the ip 
restricted websites. 

Does anyone have any suggestion on how i can still block IP but 
allow users from a particlar web site access.    Any ideas would be 
gratefully recieved.  

Many Thanks
