RedirectFromLogin Goes Nowhere?

    Can anyone shed any light on the following:

    I have forms authentication setup within the web.config file (see below)
    which protects the entire website, which brings up the login page - OK.

    However, even though I have been logged in and authenticated it is still
    returning to the login page. However if i log in again it will try to go
    off to the originially specified location, but never seems to get there?

    If i then directly type in the original URL i tried in the very 1st place it
    resolves fine, as i am now authenticated.

    This is extremely baffling - hope someone can help!


    Web Config settings.

    <configuration>
    <system.web>
    <customErrors mode="Off"/>
    <pages smartNavigation="true"/>
    <compilation debug="true"/>

    <authentication mode="Forms" >
    <forms name="App1" path="/" loginUrl="login.aspx" >
    <credentials passwordFormat="Clear">
    <user name="tester" password="testing" />
    </credentials>
    </forms>
    </authentication>


    <authorization>
    <allow users="tester"/>
    <deny users="?"/>
    </authorization>
    </system.web>

    </configuration>

  2. Dave,

    This web.config should work although you should reverse your <allow> and
    <deny> tags in the <authorization> element.

    Thanks for that Jim

    You are right of course they should ordered differently, but unfortunately
    that did not make any difference...

    This all works fine on my local pc and server, but not on my ISP's dotnet
    site (Fasthosts) - is there anything i can ask them that might be causing
    this?

    Thanks again...

    Cheers

    Dave

  4. Dave,

    I would check to see if it's really parsing your web.config. Try adding a
    <foo> tag to your web.config and see if it throws an error.

  6. Dave,

    Okay, now we know that we are truly parsing your Web.config.

    In order to really troubleshoot this, you really need access to the server.
    It would then be best to open a case with us so that we can look into it.
    If your host will agree to conference call with us, we can figure out
    what's going on.

  10. Dave,

    That's a shame.

    How are you coding your Forms authentication? Are you just calling
    RedirectFromLogin()? How are you authenticating in the live site? Are you
    just using the web.config with a list of users?

    Jim

    Here is the code snippet from the login page that i use:

    if dat.Read() then
    'set the UserID and UserTypeID Session vars
    Session("User_FName") = dat("CONTACT_FNAME")
    Session("User_Type_ID") = dat("USER_TYPE_ID")
    FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage(dat("USER_ID"), "False")

    'pick the users roles/permissions
    GetUsersRoles()

    lblValid.Text = "Valid Login Details..."
    else
    'set message to bad login details
    lblValid.Text = "Incorrect Login Details"
    end if


    And here is the whole web.config file:


    <configuration>
    <system.web>
    <customErrors mode="Off"/>
    <pages smartNavigation="true"/>
    <compilation debug="true"/>

    <authentication mode="Forms" >
    <forms name="Nerisis" path="/" loginUrl="login.aspx" timeout="20" ></forms>
    </authentication>

    <authorization>
    <deny users="?"/>
    </authorization>
    </system.web>

    <appSettings>
    <add key="DBconnString" value="Server=myserver;Password=xxx;Persist
    Security Info=True;User ID=sa;Initial Catalog=LMS" />
    </appSettings>


    </configuration>

    the records.

  14. Dave,

    It's hard to say without seeing all of your code, but with a DataReader,
    you would normally use a while loop since you should expect that the
    DataReader contains more than one record.

    Have you debugged this to see if authentication is failing on the first
    attempt?
