( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have following code which tries to read the REMOTE_USER environment variable passed by IE to the server, but it's not working:
use strict; use warnings; use CGI; my $q = CGI->new(); my $UserID = $ENV{"REMOTE_USER"}; print $q->header(); if($UserID){ print "User:<b>$UserID</b>"; }
The apache log shows
[error] Bad/Missing NTLM/Basic Authorization Header for /testarea/test [6275] AuthenNTLM: timed outwhile waiting for lock (key = 23754)
Anyone has some sugestion how to make this simple script work, or where to start debug?

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
