anyone here using auth_basic? I am having an issue where the client sends the username / password every single request, doesn't seem like the appropriate way to stay logged in

I wanna say that is how it's supposed to work. I believe the client will send the encoded login string every request, which the server will validate each request. I'm not 100% on that though. Is the behavior different on Apache?

@Giancarlos you can enable session and "remember" that user has been logged in already not requiring repeated auth. Normally client would send Authorization header in response to 401 Unauthorized
