Hi there,
have been looking at using the Form Authentication method for securing some of my pages and it looks good but limited. I would like to be able store the fact that they have already logged in. Then I would be able to check whenever they try to access certain pages and grant access without relogging in if they already have. This doesn't seem possible with this method but I find it difficult to believe that option is not facilititated. Is it?
Cheers in advance

If they are already logged on they will remain logged on. The server is responsible for identifying them. Doesn't it work on your app server?
