Discuss web gateway help
This page describes the meanings of various icon links that appear on
this gateway (as well as word links that are used instead of icons if

using the MIT certificate support in this server.

of the icons, and in the text clients, the words are omitted. The
inactive icons look like this:
MIT certificate support
In order to make a non-public meeting accessible only to authorized users
via this gateway, you need to place the daemon.diswww@ATHENA.MIT.EDU
principal on the ACL for the meeting in question, giving it rs
access bits to allow read access or arsw bits to allow read-write
Using the command-line discuss client, this can be done as follows:
discuss: g meeting_name
discuss: set_acl rs daemon.diswww@ATHENA.MIT.EDU
