Subject Re: getRemoteUser() problem
Date Thu, 09 May 2002 20:01:02 GMT
Hello Lloyd,

On your <Connector> tag in Server.xml, you need to have
tomcatAuthentication="false".  It defaults to true.  If true,
getRemoteUser() will give you a null value.  When false, you will get
the remote user from Apache.

For example:

<Connector className="org.apache.ajp.tomcat4.Ajp13Connector"
               port="8009" minProcessors="5" maxProcessors="75"
               acceptCount="10" debug="0" tomcatAuthentication="false"/>
