Subject Re: Getting LOGON_USER from the header
Date Tue, 30 Aug 2005 01:16:00 GMT
By default, tomcat ignores the REMOTE_USER header from Apache or IIS in 
favor if it's own authentication.  To get tomcat to accept the IIS 
authentication info, add  this attribute to the <Connector/> element in 
server.xml:

tomcatAuthentication="false"
