I am using JBoss 4.0.2 with the embeded Tomcat 5.5.9 And I have setup my Win2k/IIS 5 to work with the JK isapi_redirector. I have verified that the redirector is working correctly.
My question is one about authentication. In my webapp, I use a Realm in Tomcat to authenticate my user. This realm does work correctly. If I access my webapp directly through jboss server:8080/webapp, the login prompt appears and everything works great. If I try to access the app through the redirector server/webapp, I get the login prompt, but the login fails. If I start my session by going to server:8080/webapp and login, then change my address to server/webapp the application works fine.
So from the best I can tell, the redirector is somehow not communicating the login information correctly. Has anyone seen this problem before?

I found an answer. The problem is the directory security permissions assigned to the jakarta virtual directory in IIS.
