    Hi,

    I'm a tad confused regarding the difference between an asp.net session and
    an authentication session and their timeouts. Do the two types of session
    exist independantly of one another? If so, what happens if one expires
    before the other? Any info appreciated. PS. Using asp.net v2

  2. Yes, they are separate animals and they exist independently of one another.
    If Session times out and Forms Auth doesn't, you are still authenticated but
    your Session is gone. And, vice-versa.
    Hope that helps.
