Login with Jira user accounts

I'd like to configure Confluence to use Jira's user accounts. Jira and Confluence are both on the same Tomcat instance and they're running on an internal network.

In Confluence, I added Jira as a trusted application with incoming and outgoing authentication. In Jira, I did the same. I filled in IP addresses and URL patters according to this chapter[1] in the Application Links manual.

Still, I can't log in to Confluence using my Jira account name.

Is this even possible? Where can I find out what's wrong?

Not sure if you're reading the right thing... you need to set jira up as a user server. Information here: http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Connecting+to+Crowd+or+JIRA+for+User+Management

Jamie is absolutely right, you're looking in the wrong place. You don't need trusted apps at all, when using Jira users as Confluence users, follow the link he's given.
