It was a matter of adding tomcatAuthentication="false" in the connector settings. I didn't realize this parameter was still valid in JBoss :)
I am doing the same task as your migration => Apache + JBoss with using LDAP authenticaion; just use mod_proxy. How can you just use Apache for entry authentication and then access to JBoss's web application? If the user directly call the URL to JBoss's web application, JBoss won't ask them to input the password.
I still stuck in trying to setup LDAP authentication in JBoss, still fail.
Thanks for any help.
Refer to "dan957" setup for authentication, I confuse about his setting. I can setup basic authentication with using LDAP in apache (front end). If no authentication setup in JBoss, how can I secure the JBoss web server even thought I get the remote user name from apache. Anyone can directly call JBoss with using the URL in their bookmark. Any trick???????
For my target setup
End User ---> (one server with apache and JBoss)
Apache with proxy to JBoss
JBoss with LDAP
(set IP control, only accept localhost request)
Any comment/suggestion? I still stuck in using LDAP authentication in JBoss!!!!!
