if my web application will live in a "web farm" environment, is forms authentication the best way to go? or, should i simply force the user to authenticate on each page that i need them to? i ask this as i'm having trouble configuring / setting up my web application (ASP .NET 3.5 [C#]), that will live on a goDaddy server, so that for a certain sub set of pages, the user only has to authenticate once when they initially browse to one of the pages within that subset or when they logout of the site and try to come back. i came across this article:

which made me question whether or not it was even worth me continuing to research my problem.
