I had used xampp several times but I'm not an advanced user. Now I need really experts' help to solve my problem related to authentication.
Today, I've installed xampp on a server within my company network. I installed some php+mysql applications there and it worked fine, until I've decided to open that server to public.
That server is now open to outside my company network.
I can reach my application via http://mysubdomain.mycompanydomain/myapp whenever I browse within my company network, but that link does not work properly outside the network. Instead it shows me a popup saying "Authentication Required" and asking credentials.
Today I've crawled the web but couldn't find a clear guide to understand the authentication and security issues and solve my problem. I don't want to create a security gap while opening my app outside the company.
What would your advice be?
Thanks in advance.
