Topic: Acrobat Form Submit and SOAP permissions

I'm looking for some pointers as to how to handle the following situation.

We have a home grown web based workflow system that I'm trying to integrate with Acrobat forms.

I'm able to communicate with the workflow by either form submits or SOAP calls. However, this system is protected by Netegrity, so in order to communicate I need to have an authenticated web session.

I think this should work fine assuming there is already an open IE browser open that has been authenticated. But what will happen when I try to post/SOAP and there isn't one. I'm assuming Acrobat isn't smart enough to handle the logging in.

Also, from JS in Acrobat can I get to the Cookies that are set so that I can check to see if I will need to login? If I can do that then I can possible stop the submit and display a message pointing them to a page that will force them to authenticate first.

Or does none of this make any sense? ;)
