Maintaining session and auth. ticket from page to page redirection

  1. Hi,

    I'm hoping that someone can clear some of my confusion as I cannot seem to
    find a complete answer on the subject.

    I'm using VS.NET 2003 and creating an ASP.NET mobile application.
    I'm using Forms Authentication to authenticate the user.
    Now, I'm assuming that the device that hits this ASP.NET application cannot
    support cookies. Therefore, I've setup my web.config as such (i.e. setting
    sessionstate cookieless=true etc).
    Now, on all of the examples that I have seen on this subject, they always
    use the MobileFormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage method to go to the
    next page. However, I'd like to control where the user goes next and
    therefore would like to use Me.RedirectToMobilePage. However, I've read that
    only the RedirectFromLoginPage supports putting the authentication ticket
    and session in the query string where as I have not read anything about
    RedirectToMobilePage supporting this functionality. I have a strange feeling
    that it doesn't because when I use RedirectToMobilePage after validating the
    login, the application appears to try and go to my next page (another aspx
    page), but cannot find an authentication ticket in the query string and
    sends me back to the login page.

    So, how does one go from page to page and maintain all that authetication
    data in the query string?
    Here is what I have in my Login code-behind:

    'Verify that it is a valid user.
    If (CheckCredentials(tbLogin.Text.Trim, tbPassword.Text.Trim)) Then
    Session("UserID") = tbLogin.Text
    FormsAuthentication.SetAuthCookie(tbLogin.Text, False)
    ' Create a client script to open the window
    sUrl = "../Loads/Loads.aspx"
    nFailedLogin += 1
    Session("FailedLoginAttempts") = nFailedLogin
    sUrl = "../Login/BadLogin.wml"
    End If
    'MobileFormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage(tbLogin.Text, True)
