The Apache connector does not know anything about what is in your web.xml file,
so it doesn't know about your security constraints that ask for authentication.
You will have to use standard Apache facilities to configure valid users.

In Tomcat 4.0, this will not be the case -- the web connector will be configured
from the contents of the web.xml file.
