Hello,
- I'm using tomcat-5.0.9 and I'm trying to test the Digest auth method but it does not work.
- I got the login dialog , but it does not accept my correct id and pwd.
- I do not have this problem when I use the FORM auth method with the same id/pwd.
Thanks and regards, Ahmed

How are you authenticating the user id and password in the code??

Here is the Auth. related parts in web.xml.
<security-constraint>
<web-resource-collection>
<web-resource-name>MyTravelServlet</web-resource-name>
<url-pattern>/mine/*</url-pattern>
</web-resource-collection>
<auth-constraint>
<role-name>myrole</role-name>
</auth-constraint>
</security-constraint>

<login-config>
<auth-method>DIGEST</auth-method>
</login-config>

<security-role>
<role-name>myrole</role-name>
</security-role>
I'm using IE6.0 , do you know whether it supports DIGEST or not? cuz I read that some browsers do not support DIGEST.
Thanks for your help, Ahmed

Hope you did not forget to set your tomcat-users.xml file; just in case, because I can not find anything wrong with the web.xml code you have here.
