Subject Re: Is there a way to use Apache Authentication on jsp pages located on a different server?

You can use mod_jk and Apache security to secure Tomcat URLs on the 
remote server. The only thing you'll loose is access to servlet API 
calls like request.isUserInRole() as the Tomcat container will no longer 
be aware of the user's identity.
