    Default Forms Authentication won't redirect to login page

    I'm trying to set basic form authentication on a webapp. I allaccess restricted to authenticated users. After changing theWeb.config file in the app's root, I'm still not beingredirected to the login page, I can freely access anything. Notethat, although I have used forms auth. before, this is a newtest server.

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
    <configuration>

    <system.web>
    <compilation defaultLanguage="vb" debug="true" />

    <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" />

    <authentication mode="Forms">
    <forms name=".FORUM"
    loginUrl="login.aspx"
    protection="All"
    timeout="30"
    path="/"/>
    </authentication>

    <authorization>
    <deny users="?" />
    </authorization>


    <trace enabled="false" requestLimit="10" pageOutput="false"traceMode="SortByTime" localOnly="true" />

    <sessionState
    mode="InProc"
    stateConnectionString="tcpip=127.0.0.1:42424"
    sqlConnectionString="datasource=127.0.0.1;Trusted_ Connection=yes"
    cookieless="false"
    timeout="20"
    />

    <globalization requestEncoding="utf-8"responseEncoding="utf-8" />

    </system.web>


    <location path="Secure/">
    <system.web>
    <authorization>
    <deny users="?" />
    </authorization>
    </system.web>
    </location>

    </configuration>

    Things that I have tried already include:
    - Reinstalling ASP.net
    - Creating a separate "Secure" subdirectory, with a separateweb.config restricting acces. Same result, I don't getredirected to the login page.
    - Accessing web app from different machines.

    I have the feeling that it has something to do with serverconfiguration / permissions, if someone could maybe point intothe right direction.

    Thanks !

    Got me man, I'm seeing the same issue. I see I'm not alone though...

    There must be something else with the IIS piece I'm missing...
