    Greetings,

    How does ASP.NET Forms Authentication distinguish between
    tickets/cookies issued by more than one application in the same domain?

    The domain name on the cookie will be the same in this case.
    Let's assume the user name is the same as well.

    What happens if the user logs on successfully to one application and
    then navigates to a page in another application (in which he does not
    have access) in the same domain.

    How does Forms Authentication know that the cookie coming in was issued
    for a different application and automatically re-direct to the login
    page for the second application?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    -Harold
