Implementing enhcanced security

Just upgraded a solution to 5.2.2 and trying to implement enhanced security folllowing instructions in wiki.
Am splitting my logic out into 2 new modules as required: mod_login and mod_authenticator

Moved the initial login form into new solution type login (mod_login) and set this is the loginSolutionName for main solution. When solution starts this login form gets displayed as expected.
...but....
I need to to load a ValueList for the drop-down in this form. Following the model in wiki doc I added the following code to the onShow event of the form in mod_login;

var vtenants = security.authenticate('mod_authenticator','getTenants');
application.setValueListItems('Tenants',vtenants)

at the very least this should go off to the authenticator module (mod_authenticator) and try to run the getTenants function....problem is it doesnt :(
When I run the solution with debug breakpoints the var vtenants gets executed - but when I F5 to step into it *never* goes off to the authenticator module - so whether my code in that module is correct is irrelevant......it just doesn't go there.

So what have I got wrong. I think it must be really simple but cant spot it. What makes the login module jump to the authenticator module?

doh
helps if you set your authenticator module to solution type 'authenticator'.... otherwise it will NEVER get called :)
Hope this helps someone else....

We also have a video on Servoy University: http://servoyuniversity.com/ showing how to implement the new enhanced security. Its the security video.
