Forms Authentication not Redirecting

    I have a web app that contains forms authentication to protect
    subdirectory called "admin" by denying anonymous users. When I request
    a protected resource in the admin directory I am presented with a
    Windows logon dialog prompt instead of being redirected to the logon
    page. In the web.config it is setup as follows:

    <authentication mode="Forms">
    timeout="10" >

    <location path="admin">
    <deny users="?"/>


    If I change the <deny users="?"/> to <allow users="?"/> the Windows
    logon prompt goes away, but of course the resource us unprotected and
    it does not redirect to the login.aspx page. Its behaving as though I
    am using Windows authentication. Any ideas why is the Windows logon
    prompt is being displayed rather than simply redirecting to the
    login.aspx page?

    Hello mate,

    Have a look at IIS in the security tab, as it could be due to that.
    Also, search for impersonate in google. I had this problem once as it
    was that.
