[rt-users] WebExternalAuth in config.pm

Thanks for your suggestion Christian, but it seems that RT is
not performing system-authentication...
I tried setting Apache as you outlined unsuccessfully, unless
I'm muddling the config file (likely)... have you been successful
in configuring RT for external auth?
Further, whenever I set WebExternalAuth in config.pm, I am unable
to log into RT using the conventional browser interface, getting
a "You are not an authorized user" message in RT...
FYI, here is the config I'm using:
with the AuthUserFile containing the same password as that is used in
RT, this was generated using htpasswd (also it happens to be same passwd
as the system passwd for same user in this case), and $REMOTE_USER has
been set to the same user...
any other suggestions welcome, thanks again...

Do you have your apache configured for external authentication as well? It
needs to have "require valid-user" or similar set as well as the auth
directives that come with it (AuthUserFile, etc.). Is the userid in the
AuthUserFile identical to the userid within RT? Last, the password in RT
and the password in your external system are mutually exclusive. One has
nothing to do with the other.
