I have a weird situation I hope someone can help with. Here is my situation.
I have a HP Windows Mediasmart Server (which I love. :-) ) and I am using it to host my site. I am able to pull the site up and everything works except for one weird thing. If I point directly to my site with the url
http://mcleodclan.homeserver.com/ianssite I am able to log in and everything works fine. I also have a domain name that I purchased with godaddy. I have that domain set to forward to the previous address.
If I put in my domain name www.mcleodsonline.com it brings up the site fine, but if I try to log in, nothing happens. I do not get an error, but I do not get logged in because I can not see the Manage link. I do
not know if this is some kind of security issue with the way you come into the site with the forward process from godaddy, or if it is something else. I have this set up with a sql server 2008 database if that helps.

Hey, had a bit of a look at your issue.
First thing I checked was how your site was setup to forward. Mcleodsonline.com uses "frame based forwarding" which means it stays on the site rather than forwarding.
I figured it might be something to do with cookies and frames (and the request url not matching the asp.net websites url).
I think thats what it is, found this thread that talks about it a bit:

Thanks for the info. That link you sent helped. The log in process now works great. Thanks again.
