Description Chris Ricker 2002-03-31 01:54:12 EST
CUPS is administered via a web page, http://localhost:631/admin/ .  This web
page requires authentication to access, but elinks fails to open it because it
doesn't even prompt for user name and password.

lynx, however, does handle password authentication.
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-04-08 09:06:32 EDT
{e,}links doesn't support HTTP authentication, and we don't have the resources to add 
this ourselves. This will have to wait until the base maintainers decide to implement it. 
Until then, use lynx.
