Abstract

The disclosed technique provides a way for users of personal computers and other systems to sign-on automatically to host systems. This eliminates the need to sign-on at the target system of a pass-through operation, provides a mechanism for the source system to identify the request to automatically sign-on, and allows the target system to permit the pass-through session to automatically sign-on.
