I got the following error when my asp.net during a logon aspx page.  Initially it works fine, but now it's gave the following error.  Do I need to refresh something since it did worked when I first launched it and if I wait a long while then it will work again?  Is there something locking up?

I think attribute mode inside<authencication> is not correct, try this

<authentication mode="Forms">
      <forms loginUrl="Login.aspx" name=".ASPXFORMSAUTH" defaultUrl="~/Default.aspx" timeout="30" path="/"/>
</authentication>
<authorization>
      <deny users="?"/>
      <allow users="*"/>
</authorization>
