    Default FormsAuthentication.Encrypt problem

    Hi,

    I have a strange problem. I get NULL reference out of
    Encrypt function.

    FormsAuthenticationTicket ticket = new
    FormsAuthenticationTicket(1,
    userName,
    DateTime.Now,
    DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(30),
    false,
    null,
    FormsAuthentication.FormsCookiePath
    );

    string enc = FormsAuthentication.Encrypt(ticket);

    Variable enc contains NULL reference.

    Thanks in advance.

    I believe the problem is caused by the lack of user data defined for the
    ticket. In your call to the FormsAuthenticationTicket constructor, you're
    passing "null" for this. Try including some data (string). That should
    work.
