Subject Re: [users@httpd] Password protect... no user required
Date Thu, 15 Jun 2006 15:34:49 GMT
Alternatly, you could do what my WRT54g does and use HTTP
authentication, but simply ignore the username field.  Or have a blank
username?
Either way, I don't know your situation, but that may be the simplist
way to go...
