    Question Authentication Question.

    I'm trying to make a script for my employees to authenticate themselvies easier and faster. They have to log in into a number of sites to get the job done, many times each day.

    My question:
    Is there a way to populate the input fields as a client through a script.

    If its a popup, I understand that I can authenticate my self through address field, such as http://nameass@www.somesite.com.

    But how can this be done, if the name/pass are html input fields on the 3rd party site, here I have no control over the input values and ect.

    THANKS.

    View the source of the page the 3rd party sites use to accept the user name and password. The field names will be specified for you along with how it needs to be submitted, etc. The field names will not change all that often. Worst case, every new release. Best case, never.
