P: n/a
Is there a method that will indicate the person who logged successfully is
Logged and therefore allowed to browse freely other then using the
'Web.Security.FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLogi nPage' method

Samuel

Samuel,
If a user is logged in,
the User property of the Page class will have a Name property with the
username;
you can access this from anywhere in your application.

Let me try and clarify my question

If the user types in the url the Login.aspx file then enters the username and the password, clicks the login button and the form validates the values against values from the database

In case the values are correct and i want to send the user to another page, currently when i try doing it using the Response.Redirect method then if the destination page is in a protected folder it returns back to the login page because ASP.NET doesn't know that this user is authenticated

So all I need is another method that set the user as authenticated and then when i call the
Response.Redirect Method it will work

Of course if the user was automatically Redirected by the system to the login page then I can use the Web.Security.FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLogin Page method

Thank you for your help

Use either Forms Authentication or Basic Authentication. You can't "Set" a user as authenticated.

Well, You have to manually build the FormsAuthenticationTicket and then
redirect the user. Here is an article that you can look at.

First of all, what do you mean "protected". How did you protect it? Who has
access?
