Brad,

  You are correct that protect works like pass, -first match wins.
However what I am having trouble with is that while I match the correct
protect I cant get that protection setup to not prompt for userid and
password. I can get it to prompt for a different one (ie from a
different validation list or from the system instead) but what I was
trying for was "OK you can go to www.ibm.com or
www.ourcompanywebsite.com without a userid and password but any other
site on the web will require you to authenticate."

  Thanks!

    - Larry
