Description: This small demo program starts two different webservers:
  • Firstly, it provides a sample web server that povides the documents in ../../src/doc (or the files specified with -root) at port 8086 (or at the port specified via the -port option) as unprotected resources.
  • Secondly, it starts a second webserver with basic access control (it accepts test/test as user/password) on port 9096 (or on the port specified via -protected-port). If it receives an request for an resource named "exit", it terminates. For all other requests it returns actual information about the user and the issued request.
To see, how it works, contact it e.g. from netscape.
