User Prompted Twice For Apache Server Authtype Basic Credentials When Launching Oracle Forms
(Doc ID 340781.1)
Last updated on OCTOBER 09, 2023
Applies to:Oracle Jinitiator - Version 1.3.1 and later
Oracle Forms - Version 10.1.2.0.2 to 10.1.2.0.2 [Release Oracle10g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
This problem can occur on any platform.
The objective is to deploy Oracle Forms via a independent Apache Server acting as 'Proxy / SSL accelerator'
On this Apache Server, authentication has been setup so that when the Forms https URL is called for the first time, the front end Apache Server will prompt the user for authentication.
Below is a basic diagram of the topology:

However, the following sequence of events occurs:
- The user first brings up a front end web page. On this page there is a link to call the forms application
- The user is prompted to authenticate and authentication is successful
- Forms attempts to connect to the Forms Listener Servlet the front end
- Apache unexpectedly prompts for authentication again. The user should only need to authenticate once
