Default Authentication in ASP .NET (VB)

I am wondering if anyone can help me.

I have designed a dynamic website using asp .NET and need to create a login for a secure area to access a database (MSDE) I have got the thing to work locally (IE On the machine the website is stored) but when I try to test it out over my LAN, I can seem to get access to the secure data.

Below is the web.config code:



        <customErrors mode="Off" />
            <authentication mode="Forms">

                    <forms name=".ASPXAUTH"
                           timeout="999999" />



            The <authorization> section enables developers/administrators to configure
            whether a user or role has access to a particular page or resource. This is
            accomplished by adding "<allow>" and "<deny>" sub-tags beneath the <authorization>
            section - specifically detailing the users/roles allowed or denied access.

            Note: The "?" character indicates "anonymous" users (ie: non authenticated users).
            The "*" character indicates "all" users.
               <deny users="?" />


And below is the code for login.aspx

<%@ Page Language="VB" ContentType="text/html" ResponseEncoding="iso-8859-1" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="MM" Namespace="DreamweaverCtrls" Assembly="DreamweaverCtrls,version=,publicK eyToken=836f606ede05d46a,culture=neutral" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Web.Security"%>
ConnectionString='<%# System.Configuration.ConfigurationSettings.AppSett ings("MM_CONNECTION_STRING_Test") %>'
DatabaseType='<%# System.Configuration.ConfigurationSettings.AppSett ings("MM_CONNECTION_DATABASETYPE_Test") %>'
CommandText='<%# "SELECT * FROM dbo.USERS WHERE userName = @userName and password = @password" %>'
Expression='<%# IsPostBack %>'
  <Parameter Name="@userName" Value='<%# IIf((Request.Form("txt_user") <> Nothing), Request.Form("txt_user"), "") %>' Type="NVarChar" />
  <Parameter Name="@password" Value='<%# IIf((Request.Form("UserPass") <> Nothing), Request.Form("UserPass"), "") %>' Type="NVarChar" />
<MM:PageBind runat="server" PostBackBind="true" />
<Script runat="server">
Sub Page_Load(Src As Object, E As EventArgs)
If Not IsPostBack Then
End If
End Sub

<title>Login page</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
  if DataSet1.recordcount > 0 then
    FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage(txt_User .Text,true)
  else if ((Request.Form("UserPass"))) <> Nothing OR ((Request.Form("txt_user"))) <> Nothing
    response.Write("Login failed. Please try again.")
  end if

rest of page here

Can anyone offer any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Can you access any pages? (unsecure ones)? or are they all protected?

Is this webconfig in the root or a special subdirectory?

Are their multiple sites on this one webserver?
