[Jalview-discuss] Kerberos

I am trying to run the latest version of the Jalview applet in a single-sign-on (SSO) environment using Kerberos authentication. I have setup my Apache web server to use kerberos authentication when a user accesses the directory, where these files are located:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 436094 2012-01-06 15:06 jalviewApplet.jar
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root    623 2012-01-06 15:09 jalviewtest.aln
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root    448 2012-01-06 15:28 jalviewtest.html

The user can load the html file and the applet just fine with SSO, but when the applet tries to access the .aln file a new login prompt is displayed by the applet. Is there any chance that the applet can reuse the kerberos authentication session so the user does not need to provide credentials again?

My applet tag is listed below.

Thank you for any help!

Best regards
