I finally got IIS to forward my request to Tomcat using the Apache Tomcat-Connectors doc. I am trying to authenticate the user login/id that executes the request to my web app to be able to grab the user login and use in my java app. Has anyone on this list setup a server environment variable in the workers.properties file that would equal the REQUEST.SERVERVARIABLE(AUTH_USER) in IIS?

Can I get the same thing from the HttpServletRequest object by using the getRemoteUser method when the request is made from IIS?

I hope I posted on the correct list since the workers.properties file is located in the tomcat conf directory.

Any help here would be appreciated.

 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
