user pass authentication like htaccess (so it protects the entire directory - not just ind. pages)

i'm using a unix server with cf on it. i can password protect directories using something called htaccess.  i'd like to be able to do the same thing with cf w/o having to apply user authentication to every page in the directory.

is there a way to do this?????/

Hi,

a minor correction to PE_CF_DEV's comment: the file must be named "Application.cfm" (capital 'A'), or it won't work.

HTH,

Chris
