Direct user to specific login page after session times out

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I have a few pages that require users to login to use. When their session times out I want them to be directed to another login screen other than the standard one I have at the root which is login.aspx. I want them to be directed to mobile/Default.aspx which also has a login screen. It seems I should be able to do this in the WebConfig but I don't know the syntax if in fact it is possible. I tried the following but it is wrong.

<location path="m_search.aspx">
<authentication mode="Forms">
  <forms loginUrl="login.aspx"
    defaultUrl="mobile/Default.aspx" />

      <deny users="*"/>

I am running ASP.Net 4 for VB....not c#

If you can help please provide the code.
