Viewing External (fm12) Containers in CWP

Hello friends!


I am trying to view filemaker 12 external containers with a web app. The website uses the filemaker php api.


My code is more or less this (following filemaker's example in the cwp docs):

<img src="http://'. $fm->getContainerDataURL($record->getField('container')) .'">


The first time i go to this page, a dialog pops up asking for a username and password. If i put in a php enabled privilige set account and password, i will be able to view the image. After i enter the username/password it won't ask me again (not sure how long).


Is this the default behavior for viewing containers on the web? Do users really need to enter a filemaker accountpassword to view containers?
