pass username and password to another site

I have a site that is password protected using the built in DW authentication.  I need to figure out a way to pass along the username and password to another site where the user name and password will be the same so they don't have to log in twice.  

Anyone have any ideas???

RE: pass username and password to another site

Depends on how the other site is expecting the user and password, and if you have any control on the coding side of the other site.

For instance you could use a frame and javascript to populate the login form of the other site and submit it.

Or if you know what page is expecting the login information submit the values to that page instead, in the form they are being expected.
