Subject RE: very basic question about apache and tomcat

Thanks.  I am in the process of testing.  The earlier answer from Chris suggested that I might
need some additional modules / libraries.  I am following it step by step and I do see the
unix part.

I have sent my windows domain people a request to create a Kerberos key and an account I can
test with.  However, they provided one on a box I did not have root on and it was way too
frustrating trying to get unix admin in India to understand what to do.  I now have a sandbox
environment with root and am trying different things, it has not worked so far.

Have you tried using this documentation?  If not then please don't comment on how easy it
is and straight forward.  I am doing my best and have been in computing, unix in particular,
for over 30yrs.

You are the one being vague. You are not being very forthcoming. That page provides detailed,
step-by-step configuration instructions. As I said, the page assumes Tomcat is running on
a Windows machine but that may be necessary for Windows authentication to work. I haven't
tested it and performing that testing is at the end of a long to do list. There is nothing
stopping you from testing this.

You appear to have missed the section entitled "built-in Tomcat support" which is an exact
match for what you are looking for.
