Default User authentication problems

Hi All.

Wonder if anyone knows anything about this. The standard user authentication behaviour will not let me into pages on any on my sites on my local machine, but will on the live sites. I use windows XP pro with service pack 2, ASP VbScript and anaccess 200o database. Is this a Windows XP pro Service Pack 2 problem. I have un installed Dreamweaver MX 2004 and re-installed numerous times but to no avail.

There is a logins table that holds the usernames, passwords and access levels, it worked before a SP2 but not now !

Hope someone can help

Bob Scott

Are Sessions enabled on the dev server?

And, obvious question, do you have the same access rights in the Dev database as you do in the production database?

Cheers,

Imar

Hi again Imar.

Is that enable session stae, if so then it is enabled and the timeout is set for 20 mins. But then again not sure about this being the right session thingy.

Yes, that's the thing. So that's probably not it.

Do you have a security program blocking your cookies? If that is the case, you don't get a Session ID Cookie, so you can't be authenticated correctly.

You can do a quick test by setting a session variable on one page, then submit that page to another, and try to read the session again.

Cheers,

Imar
