I am trying to setup an access protection at a particular
subdirectory using CERN httpd server. I put these lines in the server
configuration file :

Protection SECRET {
UserID www
GroupID All
AuthType Basic
ServerID SecretServer
PasswdFile /local/Web/setup/passwd.protected
GroupFile /local/Web/setup/group.protected
GetMask All@(*.imac.georgetown.edu)

Protect /local/Web/protect/* SECRET

- File passwd.protected is the file I created using htadm
- File group.protected is www : All

Can anybody answer these questions :
It didn't prompt my username and password when I tried to access the
directory /local/Web/protect/*.html. Why?
What are UserID and GroupID do exactly with the content of the

Any help will be appreciated.
