Verifying external SSO via telnet

If I understand the HTTP protocol correctly, it should be possible to validate an external SSO configuration by manually constructing an HTTP request and submitting it over telnet with the appropriate headers. For example, if share-config-custom.xml has the userHeader value set to "userId" and the server name is "alfresco", then opening a telnet connection to port 8080 on alfresco and sending the following request should result in it being executed as the "admin" user:


GET /alfresco/faces/jsp/login.jsp HTTP/1.1
Host: alfresco
userId: admin


Is this correct?

If not, is there a better way to structure the request or the configuration to make this work?
