Goal

1. Does webgate invoke the "netpoint none auth" scheme for each request to GET the resource under a certain folder (ex: /images) or is it only done for the first reference for the file?

2. If the master audit rule mandates that every authentication and authorization success be logged, for every request to somepage.html containing links to 50 image files under the folder /images, will the access-server log 51 successful authorizations? (one for each of the 50 image files and one for the somepage.html file? or is there some buffer that is used?
