    Hi All

    Ive written a portal mobile portal in vb.net that I want to secure to
    only authenticated users. I am having great difficulty doing this, as
    when I test in the nokia wap simulator 4.0 (most of the users will
    have nokia browsers) I cant seem to store any state.

    When I authenticate the user, NMB 4.0 doesnt reflect the persisted
    information. THe web config file is set to not use cookies and the
    state is persisted if I test it with a an actual nokia 6230(GPRS), the
    open wave simulator and also normal IE browser. Any Help is
    appreciated.

    (details of the authentication Im using is below):

    Dim username As String = "RyanMalone"
    FormsAuthentication.Initialize()
    Dim strRole As String = AssignRoles(username)

    'The AddMinutes determines how long the user will be logged in
    after leaving
    'the site if he doesn't log off.
    Dim fat As FormsAuthenticationTicket = New
    FormsAuthenticationTicket(1, _
    username.ToString, DateTime.Now, _
    DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(1), False, strRole, _
    FormsAuthentication.FormsCookiePath)
    Response.Cookies.Add(New
    HttpCookie(FormsAuthentication.FormsCookieName, _
    FormsAuthentication.Encrypt(fat)))
    Session("Telco") = "Optus"
