The original post (included above) was referring to access control type
security, not encryption. In the CERN and NCSA terminology, that means
restricting use by IP address, DNS hostname, or user authentication. Jon's
point was merely that in that respect, the Netscape server offers comparable
features and some might find the Netscape server easier to use.
