Thats right and clueful. Yes, I modifued my httpd.conf to include the webapp
location that I was going through and it updated the remote user, I was able
to use have the result now properly set from the request.getRemoteUser call.
BUT, again, I was not able to pass the 'REMOTE_USER' variable. How can I do
that in my httpd.conf.. any ideas what else do I need to add more in my
httpd.conf ?

Thanks again, Rainer.
