Dear Ian,

Thank you for the email you replied yesterday about SWORD2. I am still collecting and investigating the information I got. Sorry that I haven't replied that one.

The SWORD 1.3 I had worked last April on EPrints v3.2.x and it works very straightforward without particular configurations. I pasted my sword.pl here for your reference.

Which user role did you give to your test account? We are using an editor account. Probably you can try an editor account. Let me know anything I could help please.

Best Wishes,

As I understand the way EPrints works, the following should "just work"

1) Create a user account through the admin interface
2) Test the user can log in
3) Download http://server.address/sword-app/servicedocument

.... but when I enter the username and password (confimed that they work 
in step 2), I get knocked back!

There's nothing in ....cfg.d/sword.pl about users authentication.

Am I right - this should just work?
If not - what's the magic to enable access for users?
