Subject [users@httpd] Apache checks authentication twice
Date Mon, 12 Sep 2005 13:57:37 GMT

I have set up a password protected directroy as follows:

<Directory /srv/www/htdocs/excel>
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Access for Excel Files"
AuthUserFile /etc/apache2/excel-files
require user 9034001

This dir contains MS Excel files. The Internet Explorer asks me for the 
username and password as expected. When I click on one of the Excel files, 
Excel comes up and asks me a second time for a username and passwort.

I guess that for apache a second application wants to access this dir and 
therefore it asks for the data, again.
Does anyone of you know a trick to get rid of the second authentication 

Thanks in advance,
