Forms Authentication Cookie via IP Only

Discussion in 'ASP .Net Security' started by Brian Mahloch, Nov 6, 2003.

  1. Hello,

    I have a problem with the forms authentication cookie when accessing my site
    via http://computername/application, however when I access the site using
    the IP address in place of the computername the forms authentication cookie
    works fine. I thought it was related to the client machine and the
    webserver residing in different domains, but when I access the same
    application from a different webserver using the computer name I have no
    problems. Also, considering users should be able to authenticate over the
    internet the domain issue wouldn't make sense.

    If anyone can assist in helping me pinpoint this problem I would greatly
    appreciate it.

  2. Well,

    I was able to figure out the issue. NEVER use underscores in a computer
    name. Once I removed that it worked great.
