Reread or read different ini file on command AFTER starting.

We are using a web based Kerberos system for user authentication. I would like to use one INI configuration before they authenticate and a different one after. Since closing the browser would destroy the Kerberos ticket, that is not an option. Perhaps some sort of signal could be sent to PWB telling it to reread or read a different INI file. Maybe impossible but thought I would suggest it.

It may be possible if you have control over the HTML code. We could for instance have PWB respond to an external request via HTML to read an INI file, maybe keyworded similar to the PWB overrides.

I will put this suggestion on our to do list.

Did this suggestion make the "to do list"? Curious because this would help me with my challenge.

It is on our todo list, and I have moved it up in priority just for you. :wink:
