all my web pages are derived --> the cookie timeout is correctly
handled (if nothing is done on the web site during 30 minutes, an

and let the browser running overnight, the next morning I can browse
on the site as if I had logged in 5 minutes before.

AuthenticateRequest method: has anybody an idea or can anybody help ?
Thank you very much
