jforum behind htacces unable to login

Hello,

maybe someone has nearly the same configuration?

/forum is redirected by JkMount to a local tomcat (ajp13, port 8009)

Everything is fine but my users wants the hole forum protected (invisible for unknown users).

1. try:
+ A /forum folder on the webserver with a .htaccess
After login into the apache-folder i can access the forum.
But if i try the login into the forum the authentificatin fails.

2. try:
+ A protection by a tomcat <security-constraint>
The behavior the login into tomcat is ok, but the jforum login fails always.

I tryed also a proxyName and proxyPort entry for the Port 8009 connector without success.

<Connector port="8009" <br /> address="127.0.0.1" <br /> scheme="http" <br /> proxyName="<official apache url>" <br /> proxyPort="80" <br /> enableLookups="false" <br /> redirectPort="8443" <br /> protocol="AJP/1.3" />

Has anyone a tip for protecting the hole forum?

with best regards
