    Securing the jmx-console in 4.0.3 SP1

    Uday Kumar Newbie

      The need was to secure the jmx-console. I followed the procedure described in the documentation (Getting Started Guide and the Wiki Knowledge base) but kept getting a HTTP 403 error when I tried to access the console.

      The problem went away only when I added the optional <login-config>
      elements to the web.xml file in JBOSS-HOME/server/all/deploy/jmx-console.war/WEB-INF.

      <login-config>
      <auth-method>BASIC</auth-method>
      </login-config>

      Perhaps I did something wrong as the login-config is normally supposed to be optional. However after doing quite a bit of triaging I couldnt find anything wrong in the way I configured the server: hence this post.
