Subject [users@httpd] Partial display of images when authenticating to LDAP Domino Server
Date Wed, 21 Apr 2004 04:15:31 GMT
I am using RedHat ES version 3 and Httpd 2.0.46 using to
users authenticate with a Domino LDAP server.  The authentication works for
the text parts of the web pages and occasionally for some of the images on
the web page.
However some of the images are not displayed and this varies when
refreshing the web page that is different images may be displayed or not
displayed.  For each of the images that are not display the user is asked
to authenticate again. The logs show that the user authentication has
failed with invalid credentials. If I restart httpd and right click on the
undisplayed images and click show picture (browser is IE 5.5) then image
will be displayed without further requests for authentication. IE caches
the user authentication details and just resends them for each of the

I am using the require valid-user directive in the above scenario.  When I
use the require group directive the authentication fails straight away for
the whole web page.  If the authentication  directives are removed the
whole web pages are display correctly.

I have look at the documents at the Apache web site and search the web but
I am unable to find anything that help with the problem.

Below is an extract from the httpd.conf:
