Thread: Default Login Name with Unix

    Default Login Name with Unix


    Hi Guru

    In NT IIS 4.0, you are automatically defaulted to IUSR_MACHINENAME if you
    request a page from the webserver. If I have an Apache webserver or Tomcat
    or IPlanet running on Unix, what is the corresponding machine login name
    to obtain the web page request, if there is any in the first place?

    If this name is known by many, how easy it is for someone to hack into your
    system then and how they do it?

    Would appreciate that you could send an email copy of the answer to md-saifulamri_omar@hp.com


    rgds,

    the default is to run the main httpd as 'root', and the child httpd's run
    as 'nobody'
