Forms Authentication - IE problem

Hi folks,I already implemented some kind of Forms Authentication. I got the following problem - When I'm using IE(7, 8) ONLY (FF, Opera, Chrome - they are OK) it is impossible to to get logged and get redirect to specified page from the Login.aspx. This problem occurs ONLY with IE. After passing some validations and creating ticket the Login page is reloaded again, and NO redirect to Default page exists. Address bar consists always this string:      http://localhost:3706/Login.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2fdefault.aspx  In Global.asax - HttpContext.Current.User is ALWAYS NULL under IE.Here is my code implementation:Web.config:<authentication mode="Forms">   <forms defaultUrl="Default.aspx" loginUrl="Login.aspx" protection="All" timeout="30"> </forms> </authentication>  <authorization>    <deny users="?"/> </authorization><!-- Allow anonymous access (non-Forms login) to the Images folder --> <location path="Images">   <system.web>      <authorization>          <allow users="*"/>      </authorization>   </system.web> </location>Global.asax:protected void Application_AuthenticateRequest(object sender, EventArgs e) {    // look if any security information exists for this request    if (H

image caching problem in internet explorer

i have built a custon aps.net image controls, which currently refresh the image via javascript and ajax.in firefox, google chrome,.. it works perfectly, but (suprise), there is problem in internet explorer 6 and 7. IE didn't relase the old (previous) image, so all images will be saved in the cache and ram consumption of the browser rises until it crashes...the javascript code:function getNextImage(clientId) { if (busy) { window.setTimeout("getNextImage('" + clientId + "')", 100); return false; } busy = true; //Send the request to server with the current image url as the argument var element = document.getElementById(clientId); var func = "CallServer(" + element.src + ", '')"; var sor = element.src; func = "CallServer" + clientId + "('" + sor + "', '')"; window.setTimeout(func, 0); } function ReceiveServerData(rValue) { //Receive server's response of a string rValue, which is prepared in the server's function //GetCallbackResult() var wds = rValue.split(";"); //Assign the transition effect var photo = document.getElementById(wds[0]); photo.style.filter = wds[2]; //Preload the image file from server. When finishing download, imageLoaded function will be called //with t

Forms Based Authentication - problem with custom master page and login page



I have successfully enabled and set up FBA (Forms Based Authentication) on my SharePoint 2010 Foundation server. The thing is that I need to customize the look and feel of the login page. I have successfully customized the page (and master page) to look the way I want, however, when I try to log in, I get the following error/message on the page:
"Forms Based Authentication on classic Web applications has been deprecated".

What I've done:
Made copies of /_layouts/simple.master and /_layouts/login.aspx and renamed the copies. The markup in the master page is MUCH simpler than the original, but I've kept all the ContentPlaceholders that I don't use (most of them) in a hidden <asp:Panel at the bottom of the page.

I've changed the web.config file:
<authentication mode="Forms">
      <forms loginUrl="/_layouts/loginCustom.aspx" />

So, I'm not getting any errors on the page until I try to log in. When I use the default settings (login.aspx and simple.master) it works just fine (but damn that page looks ugly!).

Does anyone know what I might be missing?

Update: I believe the reason it doesn't work is because my custom login aspx is not part of the Claims Based Web Application (because it's sitting

Problem With Internet Explorer 8 - Internet Security Dialog Box


I have two computers, and on one of them I am unable to open Internet Explorer because I keep getting a dialog box that says "Internet Explorer Security - a website wants to open web content using this program on your computer.  This program will open outside of Protected mode.  Internet Explorer's Protected mode helps protect your computer.  If you do not trust this website, do not open this program.

  Name:  dw20.exe

  Publisher:  Microsoft Corporation"

The details say it has to do with ...rosoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\dw20.exe

Each time I click on Allow or Don't allow, IE closes and I can't use it.  It doesn't seem to matter which option I choose....it still closes.  What is causing this and how do I fix it?  It's very frustrating.  I need to be able to get into IE on this particular computer.


Login problem with MySQL forms authentication


I can login in locally using the development server, but after uploading the files- including MySql.Data.dll and MySql.Web.dll - to my hosting server I can't. There is no errors, it just won't login. I can get records from my database, so I know it's not the connection.

Here is my Web.config

<?xml version="1.0"?>

    <clear />
    <add name="LocalMySqlServer" connectionString="server=db_server_name;database=tempdb;user id=user_name; password=my_password" providerName="MySql.Data.MySqlClient" />

    <customErrors mode="Off"/>

    <membership defaultProvider="MySQLMembershipProvider">
        <clear />

Using Forms Authentication in ASP.NET - Part 1

Classic ASP developers often had to "roll their own" authentication scheme, however, in ASP.NET much of the grunt work has been taken out. This article outlines how things have changed and how FormsAuthentication can be used to secure a Web site with a minimal amount of code.

ASP.NET Forms Authentication - Part 1

Often, in legacy Web applications, users authenticate themselves via a Web form. This Web form submits the user's credentials to business logic that determines their authorization level. Upon successful authentication, the application then submits a ticket in the form of a cookie, albeit a hard cookie or session variable. This ticket contains anything from just a valid session identification access token to customized personalization values.

ASP.NET forms authentication with roles

.A timeout is specified in minutes. This is "time since last request" not the "time since login". If a login is indicated to be persistent (described later) this is ignored.
.A protection method is specified for the cookie.
Next I wanted to specify a folder to which access is restricted to people who have logged in. To do this I entered the following code in the web.config file (beneath

Problems with Forms Authentication in DD 4 site


Hello,  I am seeing a strange problem with Forms Authentication in my DD site.   A user logs into and can view/edit/delete data all day, but when they execute a Custom Filter against data (for example , a control DynamicData/Filters/CustomerLastNameSearch.ascx ) then the site auth fails, and redirects to the log in screen.

in web.config I have

     <authentication mode="Forms">
            <forms name=".Star" loginUrl="~/Login.aspx" protection="All" defaultUrl="~/Default.aspx" path="/" timeout="43200" cookieless="UseCookies" />     

Offhand, I am thinking two things : that DynamicData/Filters path requires some special handling for some reason, or the control extension ascx is causing auth to get confused.   Has anyone else experienced this or have any suggestions?  Thanks!

The ASP Column: Using the Internet Explorer WebControls


During the lifespan of ASP, there have been many technologies developed for making browser-based user interface development easier. For example, during the early days of classic ASP development, keeping a browser-based UI consistent required many conditional statements into the ASP script.
