Hi Birgit

Can you clarify what is happening a bit more. When do you get the login
prompt?
When I have used "authenticate collection", I need to login when I enter
the collection, and then after that I remain logged in until I go to a
different collection.

Do you get the login prompt with each access of a document?
Are you using standard greenstone or have you modified anything?
Do you have cookies enabled? (I am not sure if authentication uses
cookies or not)
Is the e argument present in each URL you are accessing?

Regards,
Katherine
