i have a requirement to sercure a website for a customer.

they have 2 apache web servers and i used mod_auth to do basic auth3entication on each webserver.

but i have an issue, where the users request is passed from one webserver to another, and this means that the end user has to0 authenticate twice.

So how can i have the authentication session mantained between both webservers.
