how to authenticate external users but bypass prompt on local LAN users?


HI,
I would like to have a password prompt to users connect remotely but no prompt for local LAN user.
The password Directory i set prompts every user. Is there a way to just prompt login for remote/external user?





<Directory "/var/">
AuthType Basic
AuthName WebDir
AuthUserFile /home/webusrs
Require valid-user
Satisfy All
</Directory>




Thanks in advance.

I don't think you can use the standard directives to accomplish this. You might need to use a script of some sort.

You'd probably be best suited to use a PHP script for authentication, but it's somewhat non-trivial to do this.

i look around and found it on the manual page lol.. it was actually rather simple

<Directory /usr/local/apache/htdocs/sekrit>
AuthType Basic
AuthName intranet
AuthUserFile /www/passwd/users
AuthGroupFile /www/passwd/groups
Require group customers
Order allow,deny
Allow from internal.com
Satisfy any
</Directory>
