Subject How to restrict access to specific webapp + denyStatus
Date Thu, 09 Mar 2017 23:51:47 GMT
Hello guys!

inside of my "/opt/tomcat7/webapps/" folder, I have many apps over there

I would like to protect for instance, "Student" (/opt/tomcat7/webapps/Student) app to only
allow specific IP address, so I did:

"# vi /opt/tomcat7/conf/Catalina/localhost/Student.xml" and addedd:

<Context antiResourceLocking="false" privileged="true" docBase="${catalina.home}/webapps/Student">
   <Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteAddrValve"
    allow="127\.0\.0\.1" denyStatus="404"/>

It is working, I am not able to access the while I am not
source = [😊]

But, My HTTP Status on Browser, does not show 404, always saying 403...

My questions:

 - For the first statement, that configuration I did (Student.xml) is the correct way?
 - Why the 404 denyStatus is not working?

I am running tomcat 7.0.11
