Netscape and Basic Authentication
Posted on 1997-08-04
I'm trying to use Basic Authentication with Website Pro - this is the thing whereby the browser asks for a username and password and then sends the input back to the server via Authenticated User / Password environment variables.
With IE 3.02 it works just fine.
With Netscape 3.01 it asks the question when triggered by the server but doesn't seem send the information back to the server.
Is this a known bug or limitation with Netscape? If so is it fixed in any particular version? Or is it some other problem here?
