web.config forms authentication

Hi all,

I have the following in my web.config;

    <authentication mode="Forms">
      <forms name=".ASPXAUTH" loginUrl="login/login.aspx" />
    </authentication>
    <authorization>
      <deny users="?" />
    </authorization>

this is working great. However, when a user logs in they are redirected to a different home page dependent upon their role in the db.

so for example admin is redirected to admin/default.aspx, a client client/default.aspx, etc..

Now after a user logs in I want to do the following;

either redirect to the page they were trying to access, or their relevant home page? is this possible using this authentication?

Thanks,

Matt.

I assume you're using the login control on login/login.aspx - you can just handle the LoggedIn event of that control and use Response.Redirect() to send the user anywhere you want.
