    Hi, guys:

    I have a domain under a Linux 7.2 Server. I use there that .htaccess/.htpasswd scheme to control access to some directories. It normally works in this way: when I enter the protected directory the first time, it asks the user/password. If I leave the site through the browser's back button and I return by the forward button it doesn't ask the user/password, until I cancel the browser and call it again. If I kill the browser, so when I enter the protected directory again it asks the user/password. That's ok.

    But now I realized that, specifically at some computers of my office (and I don't know why), even if I kill the browser, it doesn't ask the user/password when I enter the protected directory again.

    Question: Would it be any specific Internet option of the browser? Could it be any option of the .htaccess file. I am using this file set:

    AuthType Basic
    AuthName "Private access"
    AuthUserFile /home/scoposl/www/cgi-scoposl/protect/.htpasswd1
    require valid-user

    Thanks for any help.

    Mario Jorge Lima./
