Subject Basic Authentication on JSPs with Win2K/MIIS 4
Date Wed, 13 Mar 2002 15:47:03 GMT
Hi All!

I'm confused here. I cannot figure out if my problem is MIIS or Tomcat. In
the internet services manager I set the authentication on a directory to be
Basic and disable anonymous and NT access. When I look at the properties of
the files in the directory it seems that this authentication is propogated
from the directory. When I simply input the name of the directory as the
URL, the window comes up asking for the username/password. When I input a
filename as well, the window comes up again asking for the
username/password. So far so good. However, if the file is a JSP, then the
page is loaded **without** asking for a username and password. It seems that
the redirector has precedence over the security, which should not  be, in my
opinion. Is this an IIS issue or a problem with Tomcat? I would be extremely
grateful for any and all tips.
