if (!Page.IsPostBack)
            {
               

                if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty((string)Session["UserName"]))
                {

                    strVal = ((string)Session["UserName"]);

                    if (AuthenticateNTUsers(strVal) == true)
                    {
                        Response.Redirect("~/mypage.aspx", false);
                    }
                    else
                    {
                        Response.Redirect("~/login.aspx", false);
                       
                    }
                }
}
now when ever session is empty it is supposed to redirect to the login page and display the log in form, but for some reason its going into infinite loop. I guess because each redirect is not oseen as poast back. Any ideas as to how to resolve this?

it stil going in infinite loop. I think it has to do with the back that response.redirect does not poastback. Any other ideas

                        Response.Redirect("~/login.aspx");
                       
                    }

in the previous code, I mistakenly put wrong code in if else conditions:

In the above code:
If Session is Empty or NULL it will redirect to login.aspx
otherwise it will continue the normal processing.

Can you put a breakpoint and debug it line by line to see if it comes into the if condition, also what is the value for the Session["UserName"].ToString().
Does it has username string value or not.

Cheers!

Can you tell us the design of the login page? And why do you want to do the authentication on page load

Remove your "else" block in your code.

If it is the login page, you don't need to Redirect to login.aspx at all. If you don't redirect, it will stay on that page.
Or is it that you are using a BasePage class  that the login inherits from or master page Load?

If that is the case then you can check if it is request from Login.aspx and if so then don't do a redirect like:

string filename = VirtualPathUtility.GetFileName(Request.Path);
                if (filename != "Login.aspx")
                {
                    Response.Redirect("~/Login.aspx");
                }
