Not possible unless you sign in first.

And anyway, you cannot access a file on a different domain using Ajax unless the site implement CORS or XDR

On the server you have a better chance

The user will still be presented with the sign in unless you do it for him/her on the server and proxy the pages

Possibly a solution here: http://www.google.com/search?q=jquery+authentication
depending on the target server

You speak of 'pages', however anything requested by a browser to a server is a file.
The server dictates what files are returned.
Any host server, by definition of security, allows no access by default.
Access is then simple and allowed 'bit by bit'.

For example:

1.
Allow a single port to be accessed (by firewall and then only by the webserver software)

2.
Require additional incoming data (username and password) before returning some files.

I would respectfully advise you research HTTP protocol.
As a summary, a host(server computer) will not allow access to any controlled files, a client(user browser) will not allow access to local files (eg website must as a minimum require permission to change data on the client computer).
Protection therefore must be consensual !
From your basic description I would advise that some indication is given to visitors being taken away from your website domain.
I would suggest not using an IFRAME but using
<a target=''_blank''>
or
javascript window.open (ie popup)

You don't have any control on an external domain.
HOPEFULLY I HAVE EXPLAINED WHY YOU CAN'T GET A SOLUTION !!!

There are several server based possibilities to proxy with or without authentication.
