The IBM server supports authentication in a manner similiar to I/Net. And
yes, you can specify *SYSTEM* in your server directives to use the AS/400
user profile as your authentication file.

In fact using the *SYSTEM* may be the easiest way of maintianing user's and
groups via the IBM HTTP server.

You define rules at the directory level just like you do in the I/Net
servers, but the syntax is very different.

Go out to www.as400.ibm.com/http for the docs on the new server. They have
an excellent manual that will step you through the process.

If you use the *SYSTEM* convention to use AS/400 user profiles as the
repository for users, you can use standard CL commands to add delete or
change users.

IBM HTTP Server authentication


chandani@kingland.com (Salim Chandani)

Hi,

I am trying to understand how authentication works on IBM Http server. Any
comparisons/contrasts with the I/Net server?
Also, can it be tied with user-profile? We are thinking of porting from
I/NET to IBM and haven't deployed IBM yet.

Thanks.
