Change Password - Form Authentication,ASP.NET

Hi,
I am using Login Control - Form Authentication in my application.
Autheticating users using Custom function using LDAP for Active Directory.
Every thing works perfectly fine.

Now, i have created a forgotPassword.aspx page and added a PasswordRecoveryURL& PasswordRecoveryText on the Login control.... expecting whenver user cliks on "Forgot password".. should be taken to that page .
But,..it still hangs on at Login.aspx page expecting user to provide login credentials ....after that it takes to "forgot passoword" page.

How can i directly go to ForgotPassword.aspx page .

ASP.net 2.0, C#.net
(Note:- Not using Memebrship)

(pls find the code for Ref)

Web.Config
----------
<authentication mode="Forms" >
			<forms loginUrl="login.aspx" name="adAuthCookie" timeout="60" path="/">
			</forms>
		</authentication>

--------------------------------------------------------------

Login.aspx
**********
if (e.Authenticated )
{
  Session["UserID"] = Login2.UserName;                     
  string groups = adAuth.GetGroups();
  FormsAuthenticationTicket authTicket = new  FormsAuthenticationTicket(1, Login2.UserName, DateTime.Now, DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(60), false, groups);
                      string encryptedTicket = FormsAuthentication.Encrypt(authTicket);
                      HttpCookie authCookie = new HttpCookie(FormsAuthentication.FormsCookieName, encryptedTicket);
                      Response.Cookies.Add(authCookie);

The following link provides examples and sample code for using Forms Authentication and connecting to Active Directory.  If you are having difficulty, try modifying your code to more closely match the examples.

Hi nbove,

Thanks for th ereply.

As mentioned ,I dont have any dificulty in Authenticating user accross ActiveDirectory.

Difficulty:- Forgot Password
From Login.aspx, upon clicking on "Forgot Password", i am not being transferd to the page(forgotPassword.aspx)...
rather i'm being redirected to Login.aspx as i'm using formAuthentication(pls correct me if wrong).

So, is there any way i can make forgotpassword.aspx page as -- No authentication required

Look into using a location element block in your web.config.  Here is an example:
<location path="ManageUsers/ForgotPassword.aspx" allowOverride="false">
<system.web>
<authorization>
<allow users="*" />
</authorization>
</system.web>
</location>
