Forms Authenication

I am researching a scenario with our Web Product, and am unsure about
how to do it. In product 'A', we use Forms Authenication, and it works
fine. The User Initially logs on with user/password etc in a standard
Login page. Afterwards, they can access the site until session timeout.

Heres the scenario;

We have Product 'B' (and 'C' etc). These are basically Customer
Interaction producrs and our core product, and they want the ability
for the employee to be able to acess the various products with a
user/password pair, in this case, they want product b to access product
a.

The problem is this. Even with the authenicated user/password stored in
product 'a', when the user clicks on the url stored in product b to
access pages in product a, they are of course initially greeted with
the login page, then once signing in, redirected to the correct page.

We want of course, to be able to automatically be signed in, on the
assumption that the user/password is of course valid.

My only thought was if when accessing the product from product b, as
opposed to a normal user going to the site, they be instead directed to
an alternative login page, which could grab the user/password and url
and deal with it in page_load, authenicate, and redirect.

Is this possible? would this entail multiple web.configs?

help!!
