Subject [users@httpd] RE: HTTP OPTIONS and auth issues
Date Thu, 14 Feb 2008 18:10:55 GMT
Should also mention .. the OPTIONS request comes in *without* a user,
hence the 401 ..

 

====

 

I've got a tomcat app with apache (2.2) in front of it. Apache handles
the auth through LDAP and requires membership in a specific group. One
of the app features allows the user to generate an csv file from some
data and download it. When this download fires with an IE client, the
browser also issues an HTTP OPTIONS request against / which fails with a
401 and pops the auth dialog again. Users can just cancel that dialog
and proceed, but I'd rather it didn't appear at all! Is there some way
to configure apache to route OPTIONS requests to the bit-bucket? Is it
Apache or really Tomcat that's generating the 401? Any hints/clues
appreciated!
