    I have set up forms based authentication according to the KB article
    ( using the
    FormsAuthenticationTicket based method. I have the timeout parameter set to
    "2" in web.config, and also in the code that creates the ticket. When I
    refresh default.aspx after waiting 2 minutes, I should get bounced back to
    loginform.aspx, but it doesn't happen. Can anyone tell me why? Code below:

    From web.config:
    <authentication mode="Forms">
    <forms name="MyApp011" path="/" loginUrl="LoginForm.aspx"
    protection="All" timeout="2"></forms>
    <deny users="?" />


    From loginform.aspx:
    tkt = New FormsAuthenticationTicket(1, txtUserId.Value, DateTime.Now(), _
    DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(2), chkPersistCookie.Checked, "your
    custom data")
    cookiestr = FormsAuthentication.Encrypt(tkt)
    ck = New HttpCookie(FormsAuthentication.FormsCookieName(),
    If (chkPersistCookie.Checked) Then ck.Expires = tkt.Expiration
    ck.Path = FormsAuthentication.FormsCookiePath()

    Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    Try setting slidingExpiration="false" in the <forms ..>
