forms authentication timeouts and session timeouts

What is the best way to set these timeouts?

Should both be the same and what will happen if they are different?

Thanks
Jason

I am trying to do some testing of my application with respect to timeouts (i.e. Session timeouts). I took the advice of somebody else in this newsgroup (I think) and set my forms authentication timeout to be one minute less than the session timeout, but I was still getting wierd things happen when a timeout would occur. Today I set the timeout value for forms authentication = "1" and for the session = "2" just to test. Low and behold,...

Hi, I have an asp.net web app whereby I authenticate the user with Forms Authentication and store details about him in the session. I want to be able to catch an event when the users authentication period expires but I can't see any way to do this. Currently I have set the forms authentication expiry shorter than the session expiry because I don't want a user logged in if his session details are invalid. I was thinking of setting the...

Okay, so I finally figured out forms authenticaton, to a degree and I still have one question: If a user walks away from my application, and the cookie expires, and then he comes back, does forms authentication automatically force him back to my logon page? Or does the session just expire? Or does that depend on whether or not the cookie expires before the IIS session? Can someone help me out here?

Folks, This is sort of a continuation of my question with session timeouts but slightly different. I am using Forms authentication with the following code: FormsAuthenticationTicket lTicket = new FormsAuthenticationTicket(lsUserID, true, 6000); // Hash the cookie for transport string lHash = FormsAuthentication.Encrypt(lTicket);

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. 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,...

Hello I'm a network technician in training and I need your help. I am currently learning how to create and manage the different types of VPNs and I have a question about LAN-to-LAN VPNs. The last exercise I practiced was to create a LAN-to-LAN VPN between two Pfsense firewalls, by using IPSEC protocols. I succeeded, with both firewalls in the same network.
