Bugzilla authentication for VPN access
I encountered another problem: when accessing the bugzilla server
(3.4.2) via VPN, the authentication is not cached - this means the
according cookie is not set. This happens although I configured
Firefox to allow all cookies from everywhere, and I do not restrict
the bugzilla session validity to a single IP.
I'm using OpenVPN, and the VPN assigns another IP to my machine - I
guess this causes the problem. Bugzilla is not usable as is, as it
requests login every 2nd click, and sometimes (like when submitting a
search) goes into an endless loop of login requests.
Is there a solution or workaround?

James, thanks for pointing me into the right direction. I found the
culprit: the cookie domain was set to the remote domain, and me coming
in via VPN obviously have another domain. I cleared the cookie domain
(as recommended), and now it works as expected.
The loginnetmask is 0, still. I'll leave it like this as things work

Via the IP for now, but will try the hostname once it is set up in our

Yes, they are currently set to the IP-based path.
