Basic Authentication using web.xml

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

<security-constraint>
<web-resource-collection>
<web-resource-name>name</web-resource-name>
<url-pattern>/home/*</url-pattern>
<http-method>GET</http-method>
</web-resource-collection>
<auth-constraint>
<role-name>MY_LDAP_GROUP</role-name>
</auth-constraint>
</security-constraint>
<login-config>
<auth-method>BASIC</auth-method>
<realm-name>My Realm</realm-name>
<form-login-config>
<form-login-page>/login.do</form-login-page>
<form-error-page>/error.do</form-error-page>
</form-login-config>
</login-config>

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?
