I want the login&password prompt on my page. I have an access to modify any files on the system. Here's the questions.
1. How to setup?
2. How do I keep track whether someone already login so it will not prompt for login again.

1. That depends on your server. Which one are you using?
2. This is handled by the browser automatically.

In my opinion this is more than a 50 point question.

Also, you need to say which server software is being used.

Are you using an NSCA server?

If so then raise the points and I'll tell you all.

Basically, this can be handeled using file security, and thus it is very plattform dependant.

- If using NT, create a user you wish to allow access, the add this user to the Security-list of the file you want to limit access to. Then remove the anonymous www-user from this list. (under IIS, this is IUSER_YOURMACHINE)

- If using Unix, you can play around with chmod to limit access to specific files or directories. As I have no knowledge of Unix, I will not dare to advice you on which values to set. And chmod is way to big to discuss/teach here anyway. There is, however, plenty of information on chmod and it's use around the net. A search with Hotbot or AltaVista should produce the information you need.

If this is a unix server then the points should stay where they are because this is and easy question.
