Subject RE: Help! I am so stuck. Tomcat NT credential
Date Thu, 06 Jun 2002 16:54:16 GMT
Not sure (haven't done it) - but that sounds like standard folder security issue, just set
up a user or user group with the User Manager in windows, and change folder permissions on
the server, but as far as making NT security mesh with Tomcat, I am unfamiliar with that -
Tomcat uses the windows authentication in its own way (to authenticate against the tomcat-users.xml
or the database defined in the realm), but integrating it with folder permissions - maybe
someone else has done this?

Hi,

Thanks for responding so quickly.

How about using NT User Group to authenticate access to JSP files inside a
secured directory?  (I will read the paper now but I thought I should ask.)

Thanks again.

You can either use the tomcat-users.xml file to define users, passwords and
roles (located in the conf folder in the root of Tomcat), or use a realm to
authenticate to a database, either way there is really good documentation on
it at the jakarta tomcat site, it took me about 15 min to have an
authentication set up against an Access database, really
straightforward.......

Hi all,
 
When Tomcat is installed on W2K, what NT Security Role does it use to access
files?  How can I tell Tomcat4 to use NT Security?  
 
Thanks very much.
