Cross iframes authentication  sessions & cookies

Hi, I try to use an iframe to access pages in a sub application of one website. The iFrame html is like this :
<iframe height="600" frameborder="0" align="top" width="950" scrolling="auto" marginheight="10" marginwidth="10" name="iframe" src="/app/prot/graphs.aspx">

where the /app/ is an application in the site.

The page is protected with forms authentication and iis therefore lauches the login.aspx-page.

My problem is that the straightforward login-function does not work in Internet Explorer (it does in Firefox).

Some ideas?

Thank you!

So the page with the Iframe on it is within a protected section of your site and the iframe url as another page within the protected area? If so, when you log in, can you not set a cookie which can be checked as part of the page your iframe references? If that's set, you can fire the form login?

Hi, yes, thanks for redirecting my thougts. I now run a fail-save hidden login routine from within the iframe-page. (As I cannot trust it working from outside the iframe).
