Thanks for that - a couple of follow-ups:
1. Yes, my installation doesn't remember usernames between session (neither on my machine, or other users). This is true whether you logoff, or just close your browser. Is there anything I could do to chase down why this is?
2. ZAP sounds good. I don't know what it is though. Any example of it working would be very gratefully received.
