Subject Re: BASIC authentication Netscape specific?
Date Wed, 10 May 2000 07:28:23 GMT
hello,

i've been following this and the dev list a bit, and it seems this was a bug in present at
least in 3.1,
since then i belive it has been fixed in the daily builds.

im using a build from some days back and it seems to work(at least better than 3.0 and 3.1,
you must test for yourself)

if you let apache do the auth, the getRemoteUser() methods and so on works fine, so you dont
have to use the tomcat auth system if you dont want to. ( i myself want to use the tomcat
stuff because i'm writing an auth method compatible with the ldap support of exchange)
