Ticket #273 (closed enhancement: fixed)
TRAC auth sessions by IP
|Reported by:||igitur||Owned by:||GabrielFalcao|
As explained in the IRC channel and mailing list, I'm at an ISP that buys bandwidth from many suppliers. Each one of my HTTP requests is randomly assigned to a supplier. It's not something I have control over.
There is a setting in TRAC, check_auth_ip, that defaults to true, and when enabled, binds the authentication session to the user's IP.
Because of this, I'm unable to stay logged into TRAC long enough to create tickets or post comments. Well, sometimes, after about 20 attempts to re-login, I coincidently get the same IP and can make a comment on TRAC, but it's highly frustrating.
Is it possible to deactive the IP binding?
By the way, I've experienced this problem on PHPList too and deactivating the option solved the problem.
thanks, Francois Botha
