My application already uses mySql to authenicate users and it works fine.
My question is, I don't want the authenication pop up window. I have two applications on seperate server, one unix and one windows. I am building an application written in .Net that will link to the java app that is protected by htaccess/mysql. I don't want the user to see the authentication window, so I have to secretly (in .net) to pass the user's credentials to htaccess and let htaccess do its authenication in the background. How do I or can I pass the credentials to htaccess from another server?
If I build a html form, then where does the form values go, since microsoft won't allow username:firstname.lastname@example.org anymore?
