Does anyone on the list know what (if any) security measures are
available through Greenstone's fnord-based webserver?

Do you think Carolyn should change to another web server to gain
password protection?

Thanks,
Duane

Duane,

I am also interested in making my site password protected. I am using
a PC running Windows 2000 and I am using the internet server that they
send with the GreenStone application. I do have experience programming
web-sites.

Thanks
