Then authpf is exactly what you want. Install putty on the client
machines and tell them to double-click on it before they can get
access to whatever. If your Web form would make them type in a
password every time, nothing further on your part is needed--putty
will give them a window that prompts for a password. If you don't
even want them typing passwords, then set them up with an SSH
key--no password needed.
If your users can't handle ``Double-click this to connect to the
Web; close the window when you're done,'' then forget the whole
deal, open it wide up. Your users have already done something
stupid enough that that's the result.
If you're too lazy to install putty (and maybe generate an SSH
key) for them, then....
