login problem

I have writhen a very simple login page in ASP.NET, the login page is working fine but when I submit the right username and password I'm being redirected to the login page again.

this is the way my site is built: 

MySite (root folder)
    Defalut.aspx (this is the startup page)
    Login.aspx
    Web.Config
    Members (Sub folder)
        Web.Config (Set authentication see below)
        home.aspx

those are the code lines from my web.config file in the Members folder:

<authentication mode="Forms">
    <forms name=".ASPXFORUM1" loginUrl="../Login.aspx" protection="All" timeout="30" path="/" />
</authentication>
<authorization>
    <deny users="?" />
</authorization>

please let me know if there is something wrong in my code

Show us your code -- are you using RedirectFromLoginPage()?

This sounds exactly like something I ran into the first time I tried to do this - turned out I wasn't saving the authentication to the cookie... are you?

Sample code goes a long way :)
