When session is invalid, how to redirect user to the login page

I have a asp.net app. When session is invalid, how to redirect user to the
login page? I don't want to add the code to redirect user to the login page
into every page.

this is what the global.asax is for. PostAcquireRequ estState would be a
good event.

Hi Billy,

Are you using custom forms authentication which is based on some
information stored in session? Anyway, if you do need a central place
where you can check session state and redirect request, you can consider
the approach Bruce introduced(use some global events ).

And instead of using global.asax, you can also write a custom httpmodule to
hook any of the global events in ASP.NET. Here are two kb articles
introduce this:

#INFO: ASP.NET HTTP Modules and HTTP Handlers Overview

#How To Create an ASP.NET HTTP Module Using Visual C# .NET

Hope this helps.

You may also consider using a base page. Basically, create a class
that inherits from System.Web.UI.P age and have all of your aspx pages
inherit from that class. You can than put your session check code in

I'm trying to create a very basic login page that will redirect a logged in user to a secure page. I set the session_start variable at the top of the login page, then redirect to securePage.php if the user enters the right credentials. The redirect works, but apparently $HTTP_SESSION_VARS is not getting set because I cannot view securePage.php. Am I setting $HTTP_SESSION_VARS correctly? My guess is I'm missing something elementary. ...

I have a login page written in ASP. Once the user logs in to the system, by clicking the certain link they can navigate to the purchase module written in ASP.Net.

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.

The majority of pages on our site need authentication (forms auth against the aspnetdb database). I created an '~/auth' folder with its own config file forcing authentication for any pages in the folder. The default.aspx sits in the root folder and just does a Response.Redirect to an ~/auth/home.aspx page. The config forces authentication, which is carried out by ~/pub/login.aspx which has a standard asp:login control. I set up the...
