oh, and would someone please explain to me in *PLAIN ENGLISH* how to get Apache user Auth passed properly to tomcat 3.3? I mean, I have Basic Auth set up, and *THAT* much works. I have tomcat set up, and apache is handing the request down like it’s supposed to. Almost.

When I try to combine the two, apache doesn’t pass the username/password to tomcat. Um. excuse me? Adding auth stuff to web.xml doesn’t do *SQUAT* since all that ends up doing is prompting me over and over and over again for user info.

Grrr. Of course, I’d just use tomcat auth, except mod_auth is going to be replaced with mod_auth_kerberos in productions, and I know of no similar beastie for tomcat…

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
