All the distinguished minds hereby present:

 I have set up an instance of the HTTP server as a caching proxy. I have
successfully configured it to only allow access to the internet for
users with an AS/400 userid and profile with basic authentication and
the "protect http:* SECUREPROXY" directive. (SECUREPROXY being the name
assigned to the protection setup)  So far so good.

 The requirement now is to allow certain specific web sites to NOT
require authentication. I have successfully gotten "protect
http://www.ibm* NOTSECURE" to correctly use this protection setup for
all ibm.com web sites. What I CANNOT do is stop if from prompting for a
userid and password. What must I do to the protection setup (listed
below) so that it does NOT prompt the user??

00030     Protection NOTSECURE {                  
00040         PasswdFile %%SYSTEM%%               
00050         DeleteMask All@(*)                  
00060         PostMask All@(*)                    
00070         PutMask All@(*)                     
00080         GetMask All@(*)                     
00090         AuthType Basic                      
00100         ServerID NOTSECURE                  
00110         UserID QUSER                                 
00120     }   
<snip>
00220     protect ftp:* SECUREPROXY
00230     protect http:*
SECUREPROXY                                                 
00240     protect http://www.ibm* NOTSECURE
00250     proxy ftp:*
00260     proxy http:*
