I'm new to portal. I have a need to redirect to a portal page using a link without login to portal server. I want the link should have anonymous login or it should substitute the userid and password in its query string. Can I do this ? Could any one guide me pl ?

You are wanting to redirect to a portal page with the login credentials as URL parameters? This is a big security issue.

Let's talk about the big picture, what you are trying to do, to see if we can find the best answer to your question.

Cheers,

If you are taking about liferay portal, you can define page permissions so that certain pages need users to be signed in and others are available to anonymous users. you can do this from Manage pages and the permissions part of a page, tie the page to the logged in user role if you want it to be viewed by a logged in user, and tie it to the "Guest" or anonymous user role if you want it to be available without logging in.
