Hi Experts

Have an odd request to get done.  I have two applications, one in normal php (property application) and other in framework codeigniter (support application).  I need a way to be able to login from property app into support application automatically once logged into Property application.  Hope that makes...

When i click a link "support", goes to external application, and will prompt to login.  The same login credentials exist on both applications..and what needs to happen is some kind of login process based on the session from property app...that way a user would not have to login again..

Is this possible?
