IdentityManager and windows form authentication

Question asked by hcopropappr on Oct 24, 2014

I am using a secured service and everything works fine.  From that secure service there are links within the data that point to a secured folder on the web server.  So for example if I do an identify on a feature there is a link to a pdf in a different folder on the webserver.  This folder is currently secured using Windows Authentication.  The problem is that the user has to first log in to the secured map server and then when they click on the pdf link they have to log in again to see the pdf.  Is there any way to pass the authentication?  I was thinking that if I did windows form authentication on the pdf folder instead there might be a way to pass in the authentication token from the identitymanager.  Is this possible?  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
