Subject apache mod_auth and tomcat
Date Fri, 11 Jan 2002 22:43:21 GMT
I've searched the archives and didn't find how to use apache mod_auth 
for basic authorization to protect tomcat pages. My problem is that 
apache is on port 80 and tomcat is on 8080. If I protect a link at 
http://myhost:80/myapp/ with Apache's mod_auth, a smart user could just 
use http://myhost:8080/myapp.

Anyone know how to configure Tomcat to only speak with my Apache server?

If this is impossible, I guess I could use Tomcat, but I have a database 
already populated with unix crypt passwords which work fine with 
mod_auth_mysql. I don't want to have to change my password storage system.
