PROBLEMS WITH REMOTE_USER

We have Enterprise Server 3.5.1, Directory Server 3.0 and Certificate
Server 1.0.1.



We have a problem with the environment variable "REMOTE_USER".
When we restrict access to our cgi directories using USERNAME/PASSWORD
it works fine, but if we restrict access using SSL (CERTIFICATES) the
first time we recover REMOTE_USER it has contain, but the next time
REMOTE_USER is null.



What's happening ?????????????

Thanks

I have seen this problem repeatedly - the problem is outside your control.  The remote/client machine/ISP is not responding quickly enough to the request

What we had done is to know  which environment variables we could get and from there identify the user.

We had used :
getenv("CLIENT_CERT_ISSUER_CN")
getenv("CLIENT_CERT_SUBJECT_E")
getenv("CLIENT_CERT_SUBJECT_UID")

Thanks, jhurst.
