I deployed a custom application page to central admin.

If I am a farm administrator and the central admin site collection administrator I can access teh page with no problem.

However, if I am a farm administrator but a central admin site collection administrator i get access denied.

how can I fix that?

You probably want to give the application page anonymous access. inherit UnsecuredLayoutsPageBase class like the following

public partial class ApplicationPage1 : UnsecuredLayoutsPageBase
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
