    Hi,

    We are trying to migrate from a JSP based site to WP. And like to evaluate if this plugin will help. We are new to WordPress, could somebody guide on the sample header/payload that we receive on the Http Server side ? And what the expected Successful and unsuccessful authentication response should look like.

    Thanks..in advance.

    Any server which sets the REMOTE_USER variable in the environment (or something else) can be used. Normally this is provided via Apache's authentication modules.

    http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/mod/mod_authn_core.html

    Because of the various authentication schemes available, I can't provide much guidance on what a successful or unsuccessful authentication response would look like. Instead try reading up on HTTP basic authentication for an example:
