I have a web server that brings up a Tomcat-based login page.  Logins on the page work fine, but in fiddling around with it a long time ago (I believe in an effort to pass Windows login credentials to it)  I made the page prompt for authentication before loading.  :(

Entering valid, invalid, or canceling the prompt makes no difference - all options send you to the login page.  So, I want to get rid of the extra login prompt if someone can help me!

Hopefully someone can help me sleuth out what I set up and unset it?  As mentioned, I get a login prompt box in my browser when I go to the whole path (http://server:8080/path/to/loginpage).  If I go to just http://server:8080 I get the "It works !" page without login.

Is that enough of a start to point me towards some config file where I can turn off the authentication prompt?  I hope so!
