Subject RE: tomcatAuthentication="false" and getRemoteUser returning null in recent versions of Tomcat

Hi,

  You are right. I've test same versions and i have no good results. It
ignores the tomcatAuthentication entry.

Asunto: tomcatAuthentication="false" and getRemoteUser returning null in
recent versions of Tomcat

Hi,

I've found an issue with the CoyteConnector that I'm not sure is a
bug.  In versions of Tomcat previous to Tomcat-4.1.11, the
CoyteConnector didn't support the tomcatAuthentication="false" which
is needed to make a call to getRemoteUser() take the authentication
information obtained originally via Apache (or other webserver) front
end.  As of
Tomcat-4.1.11 and through, at least Tomcat-4.1.12, adding
tomcatAuthentication="false" to the CoyoteConnector works to enable said
behavior.

However, I've tested both Tomcat-4.1.18 and Tomcat-4.1.19 and both
seem to ignore the tomcatAuthentication="false".

Based on what Remy says bug 14069 (
http://nagoya.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=14069 ), the
CoyoteConnector config does not contain any configuration for
tomcatAuthentication="false".  He suggests putting said config in
jk2.properties rather than on the CoyoteConnector config.  However, in
bug 12196 ( http://nagoya.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=12196 )
Denny Dexter states that this doesn't work for him.  Furthermore, I am
using mod_jk, not jk2.

So, if the CoyoteConnector no longer supports
tomcatAuthentication="false", what is the working replacement for it
in the configuration for either/both mod_jk and jk2?

Jake
