Subject Re: [users@httpd] Basic allow/deny based on cookies

Hi Julien,

Thanks for the idea.
Sounds very promising although quite hard to get into to me.
I'll definitely thoroughly study the case.
Is this the page <http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/ssl/ssl_howto.html>
related to your proposal?

Still, if anyone has an easier solution, I'm interested. Again, strong
security is not required. Just something that allows the server to allow
browsing only to specific computers.

Regards
