Can someone point me in the direction of some links (or just show me on here) how to get my app to default to my login page (which uses authentication)?

You can modify your web.config file like this :

<authentication mode="Forms">
    <forms loginUrl="Login.aspx">
 </authentication>

Got your website and right click to select properties
Go to the documents tab and add the page you would like to be the default

@Burnie: i do have that in my web.config

@ewongoya: i couldn't find that properties page,..i'm using IIS 7

let me explain a little further, i've got a folder within my sight that is called admin. it has it's own set of pages (i.e. default.aspx, login.aspx etc.) within it to allow administrative things to be done within the site,..so when the user goes to, for example: mySite/Admin
i want the login.aspx page to be the default page if they haven't already logged in...

You can redirect the user to the login page if they are not yet logged in.

Add this code to page_load

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
   if (!HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.IsAuthenticated) then
      Response.Redirect(~/login.aspx);
 
}
