Session expired too fast

I am using Session to capture my login name and this session is checking on
every page that required login.
However, there is a problem that the session is expired too fast! When i
jump to another windows, then go back to the page that i have developed, the
user is required to login again even less than 5 minutes.

Thus, how can i solve this problem? This is because i can't find any problem
in my code and i don't know how could this happen? In fact, the session
should be valid for 20 minutes.

Thanks in advance .....

It sounds like the session data is being nulled out somewhere. Unless,
changed at the IIS or Web.Config level, sessions are 20 minutes.

Check your code that is setting the session data. Is it only setting the
session data at the correct time? Is there a chance that this code re-sets
the session data if the user returns to this page after having logged in
successfully.

Do you lose the session data after 5 minutes if you DON'T go back to a
previous page?

Hi, Could somebody please tell me how I check whether a session is dead based soley on the Session.SessionID. At present the timeout is set to 20 minutes in IIS, I am aware that I can reset this on the page. However after 22 minutes, or some interval longer than the session timeout, the Session.SessionID values is still availible. What I want to achieve is this. There is a small section of my site that must have an active session....

Hi all, Any help with this would be much appreciated: I have a site where the session needs to timeout because of security concerns. I want to send the user back to the login page if the session is expired. Whats happening at the moment is that objects that exisit in the Session are being accessed when the session has expired.

Hi I am using role base forms authentication in asp.net and have come across a problem that I would like advice on. On a successful login a session variable is set to identify a user. This is all good as this session variable is used to retrieve data for that user etc. However if I restart the webserver then the users session is lost but the ticket is still active. Therefore the user is not redirected back to the login page.

Hi guys! I have an issue that needs urgent resolution. Imagine this scenario: You have: 1 production server running Windows Server 2003, IIS6 and an instance of MSDE 2000. There is an asp.net app (written in C#) running which has the only purpose of rendering a page with a "Next" button on it and some status info. When the user clicks the next button, an event is written to the

I had this idea about preventing session fixation, and I'm wondering what anyone else thinks about it. The idea is, essentially, don't allow session ids that YOUR PHP didn't generate (and aren't yet expired) to log in. That way if someone sticks a made-up session ID on a URL, it won't matter, unless it happens to correspond to an active session (guessing a user password is probably easier). Is this already standard practice, new, or is...

I don't know if I should post this here or in SQL Server, but thought I'd start here. We have been using the default ASPState database that microsoft creates for session state tracking. Even though we sometimes only have 10-15 users connected, it is the highest source of database waits on our entire SQL Server. The waits are always on CPU and "LCK_M_U", whatever kind of lock that is. I used to only delete expired sessions 1 x per week...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
