After spending several days trying to figure out how to move the club and aspnetdb databases to a remote sql2000 server, everything seems to be working fine in the development mode (vs2005). My connection strings are pointed to the remote sqlserver, and
I can login and make changes as expected (again, from the development mode / and even from a local iis server).
Then I transfer the files to my web hosting service (I don't change any connection strings), and I can't login. The site works fine, but I can't login either as aministrator or a member.

OK - I solved the problem. Not sure if I totally understand, but I'll post what I've found out in case it will help others.
The link to my site at my web hosting service was temporarily set up as a "forward" through my registrar while I was testing, etc. I found that if I accessed the site with FireFox, it worked fine (users could login, etc.) - if I accessed the site with IE,
users could not login.
I can only assume this has something to do with a combination of "forwarding", ASP 2.0 membership services, and IE. If I accessed the site through a "direct" address, everything worked as it should.
Thanks for reading...

I have experienced a similiar situation with the login using a forward and IE. When the user's browser is IE and a forward address is used then they cannot login. If the same user access the site with Firefox using the forwarded address they did not
experience any difficaulty during the login.
Does anyone have a programming solution for this ?
