Is that right? > Yes We've recently added the ability to restrict access to datasets. We don't currently have a way to restrict access to catalogs. Here's a link to more information on restricting access to datasets: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/projects/THREDDS/tech/reference/RestrictedAccess.html > > 5) Are you running a stand-alone Tomcat (servlet container) > > or do you have an Apache server front-end? > Apache Server You could use Apache Server access control to control catalogs and datasets. The TDS access control is a bit more fine grained on what you can restrict but as I mention above it can't restrict access to catalogs. You could use the TDS to restrict datasets and Apache to restrict catalogs. But that would mean having to handle user and group/role information in two different locations. Not pretty. The TDS access control scheme allows administrators to plug-in their own authenticator (there's a link with more information on the page at the above URL). Don't know if that might be useful for you.
