I would think that just about any _portal_ software should be able to
accomplish this. But you should find out what server-side functionality you
already have. There may be a solution that presents itself based on what you
have in place already.

For instance, the .com in your sig--Raqia Networks--appears to be running
Apache 1.3 with Front Page Extensions from a Linux server. I think you can
restrict user access to pages via FP extensions. I found the following

[ Taken from the FrontPage98 Server Extensions Resource Kit ...
The FrontPage Server Extensions are a set of programs on the Web server that

Administering FrontPage webs. For example, a FrontPage web administrator can
specify which users can administer, author or browse a FrontPage web.

This may not match your version of the FP extensions, but it's worth
checking out. I know almost nothing about FP extensions, so please don't
rely on what I say about them. My main point is that your solution may be
driven by what you have in place already.

Good luck.
