my .htaccess file looks like this,

AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /usr/local/bugtrack/lib/PEP/bin/cgi-bin/.htpasswd
AuthGroupFile /usr/local/bugtrack/lib/PEP/bin/cgi-bin/.htgroup
AuthName Password test

<Limit GET POST>
require group admin
require group eng
require group user
</Limit>

i access the 'REMOTE_GROUP' environment variable in my cgi script.
everything works fine on an NCSA server. But with an Apache server
the 'REMOTE_GROUP' environment variable is not set. help!

i am real sorry. i just came across some material saying that
Apache doesn't set the REMOTE_GROUP cgi variable. Can someone
suggest a workaround???
