how to auto login a client (without their password)

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 HeaderUses Web servers (such as the Apache HTTP Server) to forward externally authenticated user information using HTTP headers.
HTTP Form ValueForwards the authenticated user name through an HTTP name/value pair instead of an HTTP header.
