Hi, I have been using the form base security form one of my web apps and I'm coming across a problem that randomly happens to various users.
The problem is when a user goes to the logon page, they login using the correct details but then get redirected to the "sorry - can't log you in" fail page. if i then login with the same details on another PC, this works fine. also if i restart the tomcat server and login on the pc that originally had the problem this will works fine. Like i said it is a random problem! Does anyone know of any caching issues with the form-based security, or have any other ideas what the problem might be?
Thanks

We had some wierdness with Websphere, but I don't think it was the same issues.
However, I do recommend using something that lets you watch the HTTP traffic. We tend to use HttpInspector.
This will let you make sure that the problem isn't in the session cookies or other http-side of the authentication process.
