I deliberately attempted used an incorrect password for an app running under Tomcat using BASIC authentication. Now I am always being denied access to the web page without being given the chance to login again despite turning the server off and on. Can someone explain this behavior? Was there a security cookie used by Tomcat? If so, is there a time limit on it?

Thanks
Dave

It's not the server, it's the browser that remembers what you entered into that dialog. If you restart the browser, then it should ask you once again for the password.

Sorry, I failed to mention that I did restart the browser, several times, but I still failed to get another login page. Any other ideas?
