Hi, I have a webapp which uses BASIC authentication using the web.xml and struts. Here is an example segment from the web.xml:

<realm-name>My Realm</realm-name>

We now need the functionality where we want to allow any users from a particular IP address, so that they are not prompted by the pop-up username & password box. Is this possible please?
I agree. Here's the link:
