Login to customer portal using session id from SOAP login?

1. authenticate a customer portal using SOAP login() method and LoginScopeHeader
2. receive SessionID in LoginResult object
3. How can I use SessionID to redirect the user's browser to the customer portal and immediately log them in?

I've tried following these steps to use frontdoor.jsp (http://help.salesforce.com/apex/HTViewHelpDoc?id=security_frontdoorjsp.htm), but it's not working.

Am I missing something obvious?
Is there a better way to do this?

Hi,

Please refer to link below:

https://<instance>.salesforce.com/secur/frontdoor.jsp?sid=<sessionId>&orgId=<orgId>&portalId=<portalId>

Change <instance> to the relevant instance, e.g. na1, and substitute in the relevant IDs.

I hope this helps.
