Netscape/iPlanet Enterprise servers can be configured to use
.htaccess files for access control (bypassing the normal LDAP
authentication), though I've never tried a redirect from one.

Yes, obj.conf is a configuration file; it can be hand-edited, or 
all changes can be done through the administrator console (using 
a browser to access a high port# determined at install time).

As I recall, most changes require a restart so the server will 
re-read its configuration files.

If you don't have administrative access to the system/server, you
probably can't do much.
