we run helpdesk on separate server then our main website. both use the same ldap to login and we want to auto login them from our main website.
I have reviewed the auth pages but have questions on how to auto login a client without knowing their password.
we can query our helpdesk using a inside network ip so that call will not be seen on the outside.
something like - call to get a key, put key on the clients web link and that key would log them in if their ip is the same and would be valid only for a short time period.
There is a page here that talks about the various authentication methods WHD can use:
Perhaps you could use one of these?:
|HTTP Header||Uses Web servers (such as the Apache HTTP Server) to forward externally authenticated user information using HTTP headers.|
|HTTP Form Value||Forwards the authenticated user name through an HTTP name/value pair instead of an HTTP header.|
