When clicking on the member door icon, an authentication dialog is presented. Once the userid and password are entered, then a page is generated with links to the member's purchased products. An additional link, to the Agent Server homepage for that member should be added to this page. Clicking on the Agent Server homepage link will present an authentication dialog. Either the member enters their userid and password or chooses to register as a user of Agent Server. A registration form captures the user's information and invokes a CGI to crate an Agent Server user. The new user is then presented with a registration confirmation page that has a link to their new Agent Server homepage. Once they view their homepage, a member can review their hits and follow the links to the documents unimpeded. After a click on the visitor's door icon, the visitor's path to Agent Server is the same as a member's. The important difference is the authentication dialog presented to a visitor before access to a document is granted. At this challenge point, billing information should be collected and verified. Once the billing transaction is complete, the document is presented.
