Logout and Login

Hello guest, you are using IP address 34.204.180.223.

TIP If you are not guest please login (you might share the IP address with someone else)

Background Information

TWiki.org uses BasicAuthentication? with IP address based session tracking. The advantage is that there is a very low requirement on the client side. Any browser is supported, even those without cookies.

There is a drawback however. IP address based session tracking fails if people share an IP address, e.g. a whole company might expose just one IP address through a NAT. In this case TWiki.org might tell you that you are someone else in your organization.

Why are we not using what I suggest in RememberUserBug??

That approach seems to have a drawback, see my reply in RememberUserBug?.

Changed the view/not guest message because I didn't like the grammar of "not me?" and "not you?" seemed a bit impolite.

Curious, is there a way that I can implement this same functionality on my TWikiSites ? I run two twikis, personal and at the office, and both of them often receive requests for a logout feature.

Thanks !

This topic is not part of the distribution, but you can copy the text into your own TWiki installation. No magic here, simply a link to viewauth to re-authenticate a user (this is not a logout).
