Netauth Demonstration Links

This page contains several links to the Netauth CGI, these links are examples of how we expect Netauth to be used.

The Create a new account link...

The link above displays the default Netauth page, if you are using Netauth to create free Web-Email accounts then this page will be the "Check" page, otherwise the "Login" page. The "Check" page allows users to enter thier name and a username, the username is then checked to see if it has been taken yet, if so the user is then given suggestions for usernames, based on thier name. If the username is not taken then the "New user" page is displayed.

The link above displays the "New user" page. This page allows users to create an account for the username chosen and checked in the "Check" page, they simply type a password and the account is created. The page returned on success is the "add.tpl" page, we expect you to replace this page, or instead use this page to refresh to another page that is already part of your website or most likely change the "New user" page's add command to perform an auto-login to CWMail, DMailWeb, or WebIMAP. This demonstration of Netauth cannot show the auto-login feature, there are also a few of other Netauth features which will only function on a live system.

The current "add.tpl" page contains the above link (as a form), this takes the user to the Netauth "Login" page. Here a user log's into Netauth and has the options of changing thier personal information, changing password, setting up some forwarding information, joining / leaving mailing lists and creating thier own personal mailing list. Once logged in a user can also move straight into CWMail, DMailWeb or WebIMAP without logging in, and back again.

So I invite you to try out the user creation process, create a user account and modify it's information, set forwarding rules, create a mailing list, change your password. The Netauth html pages you will see are a cut down version of the actual distributed set, this is because certain features will not function unless used on a live system.
