phpbb login from ASP

P: n/a

I need to login to phpbb Forum when user clicks a ASP:Login control.

I can do this by posting a form to phpbb/login.php with username and
password ( the user & password I know ).

My problem is that this has to be on an ASP page. I don't think you can
embed forms within other forms.

I am able to Response.Redirect("login.php?username=foo;passward =bar")
but the problem is that the URL with password shows up in the browser URL

I tried also the PostbackUrl of a link button and that shows up as well.

Anyone know how to suppress the URL from showing in the window?

Anyone sync'd up several logins at once or have any ideas?

You certainly can, but only one form can be an ASP.NET server-side form
(i.e. with runat="server").

This is actually more common than you might imagine, especially in
e-commerce apps where you need to post to a payment gateway, e.g.

1) Go to

2) Click Merch

3) Add a product to the cart

4) Click View cart

You'll see the HTML form inside the ASP.NET form
