I need to redirect a user from one web page to a page hosted on a different server secured using basic authentication over SSL.  From the first page, I want to pass the username/password in the header using basic authentication. The intent is to try and provide a single sign on type feel. I don't want the user being prompted for credentials when they hit the second page, thus passing the credentials in the header.

username@password in the url will no longer work with many browsers.

I'm open to any method of doing this as long as the user is not prompted for credentials. The authentication must happen at the server level, not the application level.

Thanks in advance for any help.
