Multiple type of Users, with Multiple User login pages in one web application

Hello Friends,

I have a situation in my website.
I am using form authentication in my web application where I have two type of users

Merchants & Customers

Merchants sign in from url
/msignin/default.aspx and after sign in it redirects to secure folder /merchants/welcome.aspx


Customers sign in from
/csignin/default.aspx and after sign in it redirects to secure folder /customers/welcome.aspx

Now I am confused on the point that I only have one login url in my web.config file and only one default url.

How can i make these two situations work on my same application.

Please help.

I would only have one login page and let the built in permissions take care of deciding what to do. 

2            if (User.IsInRole("merchant"))
3                Response.Redirect("merchant url");
4            else
5                Response.Redirect("buyer url");

The above will work as one example and I use that in some situations.  In others it might be harder if a person might happen to be both a merchant and buyer.  One thing that I have not tried but you might want to try and it might save recoding.  In the directory that you want to secure with roles, you normally drop a web.config file that has the allow and deny users defined.  Try adding another line to web.config directory file saying which default sign in you want for that directory.  My understanding is that the web.config over rides the machine.config, and the directory over ride the root. 

 But I could be out to lunch on that.

Single page with multiple user web controls VS Multiple page with specific user web controls
I have a question regarding single page with multiple user web controls vs multiple page with specific user web controls   Option 1: I am of the opinion to have multiple pages with specific user web controls and use an object to store all the information as the user navigates through the application. And finally at the end, read this object and save all the information to the backend database.   Option 2: My respected team member suggests that we have only one page, with all the specific user web controls and not use an object, instead show/hide the user web controls based ...

Creating multiple user logins assigned to multiple groups at one time
I have a single computer for our building which various building residents need to be able to log into with their own names. I have a listing of all the usernames (over 300 users) and passwords in a text file. I did some research and found that it should be possible to add them using a script, but there were so many changes whenever a possible script was posted that I had trouble following the message threads to get a coherent final script to use. So far, here is what I have found, and I hope this works in Suse 11.3: But it doesn't say anything about adding to more than one gr...

Session State + Multiple Web User Controls on one page
I have multiple web user controls on one page. Depending what a user clicks in the sidebar UserControl (SidebarControl - a datalist with link buttons) a figure should show up in another user control- (FigureControl - an image and some data) in the web page. This seems to work, except for that the figure will have a delay of one click. I.E. 1st sidebarControl click for FigureA - FigureControl shows nothing. 2nd sidebarControl click for FigureB - FigureControl shows FigureA. 3rd sidebarControl click for FigureC - FigureControl shows FigureB.

Best Approach for Preventing Multiple Logins (Only one user login per session)

(Only one user login per session) I do have some idea for doing it such as session state in SQL, but i do like to know more.   thank you very much James Wu  James Wu (MIB426).NET is only way to goMCP, MCSE, MCDBA, MCSD, MCAD I'd think seriously before trying to implement this.

question on one login, multiple users
Hello. First, let me apologize if this is a stupid question. I haven't coded in perl, talked to dbs, and worked with cookies before working with Bugzilla. Second, my bugzilla version= 2.17 We are planning on having another group also use our bugzilla interface. Our company wants to give one log-in for multiple users in this group. My question is, well ... would this work? I don't think the volume will be terribly high, but there is a good chance that multiple of these users will be logged in at the same time, and filing bugs at the same time. Thanks. Deepa ...
