How would the Application_Start() method in the Global.asax file get the URL the user used to load to the program?

OR

How might the Global object find the username and password used to log onto a releated website of ours? I want to use Single Sign On but since the browser has the cookie locked down, I need the other program or the browser somehow provide this information to Global.Application_Start() on the second website to load.

Thanks,

System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.AbsoluteUri.ToString();

For the username I think this will work :

System.Web.HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name

The first one worked, but the User was null in the second one.
