    Hi peter.

    Try www.hotscripts.com for some pre-made password gateways.

    otherwise, try the 'Authentification' tutorial at www.webmonkey.com

    (note: I deleted the identical post in the 'Graphics' forum, plz try not to cross post)

    Here is a tutorial on using htaccess -

    http://hotwired.lycos.com/webmonkey/html/97/08/index2a.html?tw=backend

    here are premade scripts for the most popular server-side languages -

    http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/User_Authentication/

    http://www.hotscripts.com/Perl/Scripts_and_Programs/User_Authentication/

    http://www.hotscripts.com/ASP/Scripts_and_Components/User_Authentication/


    The only way to be secure is to use a server-side language to authenticte users, or by using UNIX itself with .htaccess. DO NOT be tempted by a JavaScript or Java password gate as these are NOT SECURE in any way shape or form.

    If the thought of learning this stuff is a bit daunting, you may want to consider remotely-hosted password gateways afterall.

    Check the TOS of your web host, too, regarding password protected sites - they being contrary to the spirit of the internet.
