I have installed gnats 3.113.1 and gnatsweb 2.8.2 in a server. now i have
done with instaalation.. i could able to send and edit PR from web. but the
problem is how to configure it.

1. i gnatsd.access i have a username and passwd for a user with accessleve
and dbase alias name.  now when a user creates a PR his reporters mail id
field is filled by him and he can give any email id. how to restrict this
stuff. is there any possiblity of having unix username and passwd
associated with gnatsd.access user name and passwd.

In, you could remove the field from the form and instead have it sent with the form as a hidden value. The modification should be fairly straightforward if you know a little bit about HTML forms.

2. once logged in thru web from a browser froma machine the last login
remains even if we kill the browser. so once logged in the cookies get
enables. how to make it to ask every time for username and passwd.

One way would of course be to run an OS where cookies are kept private to each user. However, I will probably add a "logout" button to the main page shortly. This will clear the current login cookie and leave you at the login screen afterwards. I'll just have to reach a conclusion in a debate with myself over whether the Login Again button should simply have its name changed and behaviour slightly modified, or whether we need an all-new button.

A logout button will definitely appear in Gnatsweb 4, but it should be easy to port, so it will quite likely also appear in a new Gnatsweb 2.8.x release.
