if you dont authenticate the apache user, you could authenticate the
machine via an ip based acl. we do that here.

create an ip user account in the afs pts data base. create an afs pts
group that has rl permissions on the volume you want to serve. put the
ip address in the pts group.

Of course, you also need to allow followsymlinks in apache config.
