I'm no expert but I think this depends on your web server. I know for sure that IIS can do http authenticates against NT/Windows 2000 accounts and although I know Microsoft used to make it difficult for third-party web servers in the old days, I would have thought it was possible nowadays. As far as Php is considered, the user/password show up in $PHP_AUTH_USER, $PHP_AUTH_PW or something similar. To force an authentication you send an http Authentication header e.g. Bottom line: Check with your web server news group/user list. -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] For additional commands, e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] To contact the list administrators, e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED]
