I have a question which nobody seems to be able to answer - even the teacher on the ASP.NET course I have recently been on.

When using forms authentication, if the user manages to navigate himself straight to the login page, RedirectFromLoginPage is null and after a successful login it goes to the root default.aspx, even if you dont want it to!!! And you cant seem to change this.  So my question is, can you change this?  I want it to go the sub folder default.aspx, not the root default.aspx.

try comparing the GetRedirectUrl property with String.Empty:

If Not FormsAuthentication.GetRedirectUrl = String.Empty Then
   Server.Transfer ("/SubFolder/Default.aspx" )
End If

or

If FormsAuthentication.GetRedirectUrl = String.Empty Or FormsAuthentication.GetRedirectUrl = "Default.aspx" Then
         Server.Transfer ("/SubFolder/Default.aspx" )        
        Else
         FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage (UserName.Value, True)
End If

Sorry, have been meaning to close my open questions for some time.

In the end, due to project time constraints, I gave up using forms authentication in the end, and just did the authentication myself - much easier!  So thanks Microsoft but as usual you've only come up with a half baked solution that doesnt work in the real world!

I must admit that I have not tested EBatista's solution (sorry I do appreciate your help), but am happy to award you the points.

Apologies for my lack of attentiveness.
