CERN 'Protection' in httpd.conf: question

CERN 'Protection' in httpd.conf: question

Post by roo » Thu, 07 Sep 1995 04:00:00

Hello - here's my setup, (for CERN 3.0), in httpd.conf:

        protection       SILLY {
          userid  silly
          groupid sillygrp
          authtype Basic

       protect  /httpdocs/somewhere/*

What I'd like this to do is forbid any access by *
to any documents in /httpdocs/somewhere/*.

What it actually does when I 'kill -HUP' and restart httpd, is
nothing at all.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!



1. CERN ftp server can't open PASV for CERN httpd 3.0


    Could you help me ?
  I am running CERN proxy httpd 3.0 libwww 2.17 on IRIX 4.0.5.
  When I attempt to retrive files from cern ftp
  using Mosaic   I get the message "530 Can't open passive connection".
  But from other ftp servers, for example I don't
  get such a message and everything is OK. May be I have configured my
  httpd.conf not correctly ? Or something else ?
