Setting up .htaccess on iPlanet Web Server 6.0SP1 or 4.0

Has anyone successfully set-up using .htaccess on iPlanet Web Server 6.0SP1 or 4.0?

I've followed the instructions on
to no avail.

Help on this would REALLY be great.

Additional Info
My .htaccess file contains:
<Limit GET POST>
order deny,allow
deny from all
allow from all
order deny, allow
deny from all
AuthName "testing"
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /opt/WWW/sites/blah/docs/testing/.htpasswd
requires valid-user

I created the .htpasswd using /usr/bin/htpasswd on a Mac OS X box.
I'm running the iWS on a Solaris machine.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld jbjose! :) Apparently we don't have a lot of iPlanet wizards around... If you haven't already tried it, Sun has a forum here [softwareforum.sun.com] that may be helpful to you. The "AppServer.general" or "AppServer.install" forums are probably your best bet.
