It's always the same mistake... *sigh*

By the time rule translation reaches:

> Protect   /local/Web/protect/*     SECRET

you haven't yet mapped virtual URLs to the physical filesystem.
E.g. you have something like this:

	Protect	/local/Web/protect/*	SECRET
	Pass	/*			/local/Web/*

What you *should* have is either:

	Protect	/protect/*	SECRET
	Pass	/*		/local/Web/*

or:

	Map	/*			/local/Web/*
	Protect	/local/Web/protect/*	SECRET
	Pass	/*

(or the last line can read also:

	Pass	/local/Web/*

 but all that ever reaches it is already of form /local/Web/* so /* is
 just fine, too.)

Cheers,
