Hello,

We need to use legacy Apache (PHP:MySQL) intranet site with logins, and

share/transfer a user's logged in session to:

Windows MOSS SharePoint which is pulling in pages from the Apache intranet.

We want to keep users from logging in again when the page loads in SP.

SharePoint uses NTLM (Windows) authentication ... the only way that I can see this working is if you enable basic authentication (over SSL to keep thing secure), grab the ID and PW in clear text and then pass those to Apache.  The keys being you have to enable BASIC authentication to get the passwords in clear text on the SPS, otherwise the PW is encrypted and will do you no good.
