Looking for a way to authenticate a user on a ASP page and check for that authentication every 5 min and do this on all pages in a selected area of a site by Pages, I am looking to do this from a personal user list not the same as NT authentication, would like to have this list in an Access or SQL Database. This will be cross platform Win9x, Win2000 using IE 5 +.. Please Email me. Thanks.

You can set the forum to E-mail you when someone posts a reply to your message, BTW.
What you want to do is handle the authentication in an include file, store the username and password to a session variable after it is entered, set your time-to-expire to 5 minutes (I think you can do that in Global.asa, worst case in the server settings), and server-side include the authentication include file in every page you wish to remain authenticated. If you want to also disallow someone from viewing a page for greater than 5 minutes, you could include a <meta> tag that refreshes the page every 300 seconds.
