Losing the User.Identity.Name

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Samuel Shulman, Nov 28, 2006.

  1. Hi all

    After users return from an external website (where they completed the
    payment) I can't retrieve their username from the user.Identity.Name
    variable, however, it seems that they are still logged and they are able to
    browse secured (form authentication) folders

    Any suggestions how to deal with that?

    Thank you,
    Samuel

    How do you have authentication set up? Is it forms, Windows? That
    does seem strange...
