tlug: .www_acl

tlug note from Yong-Ming Hua <>

     I tried to set some access control to my WWW server.
I am using CERN Server. I read through the manual the
provided. But the manual doesn't tell us the most important
thing; where to put passwordfile of the next line.

       htadm -adduser <passwordfile> <username> <passwd> <realname>

And also the manual is rather mixed up with bits and pieces of
information without any clear logic. It seems it takes me ages
to interpret the manual. Could anyone tell me how to lock some
www homepages to someone, some group, or some IP's.
     Also it is not clear how to use this password authentifica-
tion system with .www_acl file. Are they different systems?
     It seems locking www homepage hasn't to do with firewall
business at all. Is that so? If someone help me, showing me
how to do this step by step, I am jolly glad.
     Incidentally, the present circumstance is that I am using
two Linux servers. B is mounted on A where httpd is running.
I put all httpd_docs files in B. In that case I should use
htadm in A machine I presume(I am not running httpd in B).
Thanks in advance.
