Two Different FormsAuth Logins for Same Application
I have what I'd *like* to be a single web application (meaning, shares the
same Session object for a given user, etc.). But I'd like to configure it for
FormsAuthentication so that if the user goes into most of the directories
before he's authenticated, he'll go to one Login.aspx whereas if he goes for
the first time to, say, "/Admin/*", he gets a different Login.aspx page. Both
pages will end up authenticating the user the same way, but the UI, etc., of
the Login pages will be dramatically different. Is there any way to configure
this in web.config files? Or do I have to do it programatically in the
RE: Two Different FormsAuth Logins for Same Application
I recommend you to protect "/Admin/*" with another role, such as "Admins",
as distinguished from a normal user role "Users". You still use one single
Login.aspx configured using Forms authentication, but when a normal user
tries to visit a resource under "/Admin", he or she will be redirected to
the login page again and if he or she enters a user account which is in the
"Admins" role, will be able to access the resource.
From your question, I'm not sure if this fulfills your requirement, please
feel free to post here if I've misunderstood anything.
