Question:

How do I suppress message BPXM023I with HTTP Server Powered by Apache?

Answer:

The HTTP Server needs a DENY to send the message.  Since ACF2 protects by default, the message should be sent.  If you are not seeing one, check for an allow rule.  Here is a sample rule to use:

$KEY(BPX.SERVER) TYPE(FAC)

 UID(uid string of HTTP server) PREVENT           <====this will send the BPXM023I message

 UID(uid string of HTTP server) SERVICE(READ) ALLOW      <====== this will suppress the BPXM023I message
