Subject Tomcat - JAAS - getting users ip address
Date Tue, 13 Sep 2005 09:22:08 GMT
Hi all,

to authentify a client I am using tomcat 5, j_security and JAAS.

Is it possible to get the IP address of an acutally client within the JAAS module (like 
getRemoteAddress in jsp)?

If not: Is it possible to extend j_security, in sort that my_j_security set a *callback* 
with the client IP address, so that I can grab the IP address in my JAAS module?

Another question: In which scope is JAAS running (application, session, request) ?
