Description

Hello, it took me forever to find a reference online on how to authenticate / login remote users--it should definitely be included in this documentation. I couldn't figure out how to call authenticate, since with local users it is authenticate(username, password). Please include a note that it should be authenticate(remote_user = username)!!

Thanks.
