i have a problem with logging in a user from server side on a claims (fba) enabled site. Users can register themselves on the site and get an email with a confirmation link. After they click on the confirmation link, they should be automatically logged in.

My first attempt was to log in with the authentication web service (_vti_bin/Authentication.asmx), get the cookie and add it to the page response. Unfortunaly the authentication web service returns a System.Net.Cookie instead of System.Web.Httpcookie.

Is this the right path? Is there another way?

Thanks for your help!


Creating a Httpcookie out of the System.Net.Cookie and add this to the page response did not work either.
