I have protected the root directory with a .htaccess file. I have declared a servlet zone
in a subdirectory of the root directory.
I use the servlet from a very simple HTML form :
<FORM ACTION=/soceca/SocecaServlet>
<INPUT TYPE=.....>

When I asked my html page, the security prompt works correctly and when I submit the form,
the servlet is correctly launched except that the "getRemoteUser" is unable to get back the
remote user from the security prompt.
How can I get it ???
see description.
