GroupWise Web - The Access Control file GWAC.XML feature needs to be added

The old WebAccess had this Access Control feature.  We need this back to deploy the new GroupWise Web service in its place.

This file would be placed in /opt/novell/gw/gwac.xml

If present, it will get processed like the web.conf file does today.

My Clarification is this chapter:

Controlling WebAccess Usage

I have many customers that use this today and must have this to move to the new GroupWise Web Client and decommission the old GroupWise WebAccess service.

We use this feature today and agree its a must.  Our hourly employees are restricted from access due to work from home and not paid is against HR policy or laws possibly.  so we restrict hourly to access gw client only from internal company issued devices.
