Subject [users@httpd] Q:Access control based on ip and/or user
Date Mon, 14 Jun 2004 14:26:39 GMT

I am looking for a way to password protect some web pages served by apache 2.0 
on a suse Linux 9.1 system  for certain users except for the case when a user 
tries to access these pages from a particular host/net. If possible I would 
like to put the config needed in a .htaccess file.

So if a user accesses the web pages from an address say 192.1698.1.1 access 
should be granted without user authentification.  If the user tries to access 
the web page from any other host he should have to authenticate himself in 
the usual manner (AuthType Basic, require valid-user). So what I want is 
something like this:

if( user_source_ip == ) then 
	grant access
	authenticate user,  require valid-user

I know how to implement user authentification for certain users in .htaccess 
but how can I grant any user access at the same time when he is coming from a 
particular host or net?

Any ideas
Thanks very much
