Hello Experts,

I have an aspx website using FormsAuthentication for user validation.  Everyone that uses a normal computer and doesn't use safari only has to login once.  Anyone using an Ipad and/or safar has to login twice.  No error messages come up...  :P

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thank you for the quick response!  Do I make a setting change in the web.config?  or on the login page?
Do you have an example?

Thanks,

Maybe you need to make the following change in web.config.

<authentication mode="Forms">
  <forms loginurl="/Account/LogOn" timeout="2880" cookieless="UseCookies" />
</authentication>

Open in new window
