It would help if you told us what kind of server you are running.
Anyway, I discovered the same thing on our server (CERN ver 3.0 running
on ULTRIX). The solution to this was that i put the file .www_acl in the
same directory as the script, and then it worked.

1. Apache/CGI: $ENV{'REMOTE_USER'} and POST

If I POST to a CGI script it seems that the above environment variable is not
available (Apache 1.3.1 on Linux, however, have seen this also on older
Apache and BSDI). It's only available if I execute a script directly.

I assume this is not a bug?
So, what's the reason and is there any way to catch it, anyway?
