Subject RE: getRemoteUser() in servlet
Date Wed, 22 Mar 2000 17:34:39 GMT
You were able to get the tomcat webserver to prompt for a login? Which 
version?  I've been wanting to find out how to do that.  Was there any 
setting you changed other than just issuing the request?

On my copy of 3.1m under nt4.0, I get a value for getRemoteUser() when I 
access it via the lan (with no prompting for login), but not when I dial in 
through an ISP.
