Ive got forms authentication kinda working in an ASP app but it wants to protect everything and there is a css folder and an images folder, both of which, because of the authentication are being protected to the point that when I run the site in Visual Studio all I see is white background with the logon page the formating and the images do not show up.

Im attaching that part of my web.config file in the code section(slightly edited for security reasons)

Ive scowered the MSDN sites and googled all over the place and this authentication is driving me nutts.

<authentication mode="Forms">
     <forms name=".ADAuthCookie" loginUrl="Login.aspx"  protection="All" defaultUrl="newpage.aspx" domain="testsite.com" timeout="90" path="/" />
    </authentication>
 
    
   <authorization>
      <deny users="?" />
      <allow users="*" />
    </authorization>

Here, put this in web.config
<location path="css">
    <system.web>
      <authorization>
        <allow users="*"/>
      </authorization>
    </system.web>
  </location>

  <location path="images">
    <system.web>
      <authorization>
        <allow users="*"/>
