Hi,
Does anybody have any ideas on how to go about using a servlet for basic authorization , with the iplanet acl, or any acl file?
It's the acl part that i'm particularly stuck on.Was able to run a sample basic authorization serlvet with just the username, password lookup in the program, but i have to use the Iplanet acl file!
Any help would be very much appreciated,
Cheers,
Davy

Is this iPlanet App Server? iPlanet Web Server? and the version as well.. iWS 4.1 -> 6.0 differs greatly.

I'm pretty frustrated with basic authentication myself. iAS is the most difficult, and I hear iWS isn't much better...

Rather than using Basic Authentication, the lastest version also supports (google search) Form Based Authentication. This is easier since it is essentially a case of 'configure and forget', but when we did it, it was almost impossible to find any documentation for it...

Davy,
I noticed that you said that you're using iPlanet Enterprise version 6.0 .. that's what i have .. i just downloaded it to upgrade from the ORION web/application server ..
I need to know some info on how to set it up .. as in where is the doc root .. where is the WEB-INF to where i should put my servlets
if u can direct me to a useful resource page.
