hi again,

Just wanted to say thanks.  Although through all my testing REMOTE_USER did not show up in "local" networks, I was able to use the LocalSettings approach as you suggested to achieve the configuration I was looking for.

thought it was cached, I will experiment with this Wednesday.

No, it isn't, and even if it was - you could create some small extension doing the same check during initialisation :)

It appears that if  Satisfy any is present, REMOTE_USER isn't passed on.

I've just tested such setup, and REMOTE_USER is passed in my case... (of course, only if access isn't allowed by host-based auth)
