As far as I've used DSS, I've only seen passwords set to restrict 
broadcasting. When I tested this combined with http tunneling earlier 
today, the tunnel get/post worked just fine without a password, and a 
password was only required for doing the ANNOUNCE, within the tunnel.

But I guess there's some way of password restricting viewing too, I 
haven't tried that. Is that what you're referring to? Can you choose 
to require digest auth there, too?
