Extended Mode enabled

Once you check User Authentication, the Extended register is visible. It offers the following options:

Extended Mode

Realm

Realms define areas for authentication.

The Main realm is predefined and covers all URLs which have no realm assigned

The Admin realm is predefined and covers all URLs which are related to the web admin interface

You may define as many realms as you like.

Users

Users have Login names, passwords, a expiration date and realms.

The Anonymous user is predefined and is used when there's no authentication.

All other users must have at least one realm assigned.

In the example above, the AuthenticateAll realm causes all URLs to require authentication.

The user poweruser may access all web pages including admin pages.

The user normaluser can access all normal pages excluding admin pages.

Anonymous has only the Main realm assigned. As the realm AuthenticateAll includes all possible URLs, authentication is required for all URLs and Anonymous does not have access.
