I found what seems like a secure way to pass in a password (see http://www.planet-source-code.com/vb/scripts/ShowCode.asp?lngWId=4&txtCodeId=7302#zip)<BR><BR>B ut whatever method I use, what is the best way to persist the authentication as I move from page to page throughout the login area? I am trying to avoid using session variables. Reposting data via the URL seems messy.<BR><BR>I imagine this is a basic quesiton, but some help would be really appreciated.<BR><BR>Thanks<BR><BR>G. Michael.
