Is this suppose to solve my problem?

"Store a user name and password in a database connection
For Microsoft FrontPage to access a password-protected database, you need to enter a valid user name and password when configuring a database connection. To store this information in the database connection, do the following:

On the Tools menu, click Web Settings, and then click the Database tab.
Click the database connection you want to modify, and then click Modify.
Click Advanced, and then set or modify the authorization properties.
Specify a user name and password for FrontPage to use to connect to the database. "

The easiest and quickest way is to create a database with the usernames and passwords. Then on succesful login create a session ID and redirect the user to your start page. Place an include file in all of your pages to verify the session ID and if it is invalid then redirect to the login page.

There is a lot that can be done but this is just a 50 point question :-(

Go to htis site where I have created you a demo of what you desire

http://www.lilmga.com/doctor/login/startpage.htm

the login is test and the password is tester

At first enter some bogus login and password to see what happens when you enter a bad login.

Then enter the valid login and password and you will be directed to the homepage.

After you have sussfully done this close your browser and then go directly to this page:

http://www.lilmga.com/doctor/login/homepage.asp

You will see that the system will return you to the login page. Once you have entered a valid login and password you are free to browse the site.

You will have to include this string of code at the top of each page and your pages will have to be asp pages.

<%
If Session("Login") <> "Success" Then
      response.redirect "startpage.htm"
End if
%>
