VS 2008 - How To Know Which Users Are Online (Login Security)
Aug 5, 2011
I've got a website project and I use my own login security and save the user and other info in session variables. Is there any way to know when they are online and offline by their user name I have in a session variable? Or do I need to use another method such as the asp.net user security?
I do know with the asp.net security I can check if a user is authenticated.
We have implemented the ASP membership and roles..and we would like to display the users currently logged in and also display the number of users online so we can display that on the page. The list of users woudl only be available to our admins. BUt the number of users will show for everyone.
Working on my first asp.net webpage. i have followed video tutorials and implemented asp.net membership for login/security.Using Visual Studio 2010 i can open the Asp.net configuration page for management locally.But then if I want my site admin to manage users/security online, how is this done? Like manage through a web browser. I guess this asp.net configuration GUI is not available on the internet?
i am using membership classes,,, i want to fetch the list of users who are online based on a condition... the condition is that i want to fetch the users with a specified userids... eg i have 10 user's userids and i want to check which of these users are online..
I have two application (one of this is mojo portal): [URL] for some users when they login into "app" then the login in "mojo" doesn't work and viceversa. I've set the machinekey into web.config file. When the users remove all cookies and session data the login works again. The two application are into a Web Farm. Should be ARR the problem?
i used security in login page which restricts all users who have not logged in to all pages. I need to restrict specific users to specific pages. I'm not using AspSqlService provider. So i cannot create roles and restrict automatically. And the pictures i use in login page are not visible @ runtime.
how to write/use/implement a script that will allow users to enter a web application by clicking a button rather than entering their ID/PW? Seems like a lot of terminology around, SSO, Blind logon, yet all seem to be doable with an ASP script -
Web App contains detailed security for users, not all users are on Win AD, so that is not an option., I'm told (?) Do I need to use a spreadsheet to validate users access to the application, ?
Script that would pass "cookie" info and allow users to enter app without ID/PW. We have a custom logon.asp page the is using forms.
I have an asp login control that uses the standard aspnet database structure.I am using my own user identification system to identify a user based on login values that are not in the aspnet database and setting the user's aspnet database login to a universal login user and password.this works fine and I am able to test this by having one machine log in as "User 1" and another login as "User 2" but I am wondering if there is a limit to the number of user's that can be assigned to one username and password in the aspnet database for website access?Will the system reach the max number of user's in the aspnet database?
asp.net 3.5 IIS7 Hosted on Windows Server 2008 (virtual machine)
I have a website which have been running for about a year without any problems. Users have been able to login etc, but now I get reports about users not able to login while using Internet Explorer. Users using other internet browsers like FireFox, Chrome etc have no trouble logging in.
The website are using the standard Forms authentication.
Also lately another website has been setup in IIS7, but these sites are using application pool. I've stopped this webapplication in IIS, but that doesn't have any effect on my problem
I see that Windows Update have failed to install a lot of patches lately, not sure if that is related to this problem. But some of the windows patches are security patches.
I have a login form and users have to enter their username and password for entering the sites ..
Also now its possible for users to enter the sites without login .. they can select the options in the menu and access them ... But i want to restrict the users ..only allow them to access the menu componets after login ... If they tries to access the contents a text have to display ask them to login
how can i do that... i am using vb.net as my language in the page
I have a site witl forms authentication using te login control. I altered my sql server, I added a connectionstring and used the connectionstring in both, <rolemanager> and <Membership>. That part of the web.config is listed below.
The problem is that the login control goed to SQLserver to check the users and their passwords, but it goed to the SQLExpress database for the roles.....
I have a website that requires users to login, but I am having problems when authenticating a users.I create a user which works fine, I then test the login on the development machine and everything works fine the user is logged in.But if a try to login the user in via the live website (same database) I get errors stating that the login attempt has failed.I don't understand why it would work on the development machine but won't work with the live version of the website.
I want to know how to do Active Directory Authentication in my intranet web application,
So far I created a simple login page and I am using the login control. my questions are how do I configure the application, how do I interface the login control so it will take the user to next page once they input their usual active directory username and password.
we have a web site (Web Site 1) which is presently working and authenticates the users using ASP.Net login control.
We have a new site (Web Site 2) which will have a web page with user name and password fields and these values will be posted to Web Site 1. I am trying to authenticate those user credentials on Web Site1 using
Membership.ValidateUser(UserName, Password); method. but i am keep getting "User AuthenticatedObject reference not set to an instance of an object. " exception.
I have a page in my application which always shows updated list of online users. Now, to keep the list-which is stored in application object- updated, i do the below steps
add user to list when login remove user on log off Then to handle browser close/navigate away situations, I have a timestamp along with the username in the collectionAn ajax call every 90 seconds updates the timestamp.
I need something to clean this list every 120 seconds to remove entries with old timestamps.
How do I do this within my web application? ie Call a function every 2 mins.
PS: I thought of calling a webservice every 2 mins using a scheduler , but the hosting environment do not allow any scheduling.
I need a reliable way of checking if a user is logged into a web based game. This is the scenario:
I have a game on the front end built in Flash with Actionscript 3, that calls a web Service in .NET. So in some way I'd like to create a reliable way of getting a list of users that are logged into the game. I would need to create a Timer in Actionscript that calls a method in the Web Service every certain amount of time, but I'm not sure which is the best way to do it on the server side.
I remember in the old days with classic asp I'd use global.asa and it was not reliable at all. Also, checking a database with a boolean, would always depend on the user clicking on "logout". So i guess there needs to be some kind of asyncronous coding in there somehow.
