[Mono-aspnet-list] Can Default.aspx be renamed

I think you may be confusing the Visual Studio tool with the behavior of a
typical web server. Visual Studio allows you to set the startup page for
debugging and testing. On the flip side, a web server has configured default
documents (typically Default.aspx, index.html, etc).

Alberto has the idea by either checking authentication in the default page
and then redirecting you to a login page.  Another thing you can look at is
using the built-in Asp.Net authentication/authorization functionality, where
you can lock down all your pages except for the login. You can then provide
a default redirect for unauthorized users that will bounce to login.aspx
regardless of what page they try to visit.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff647070.aspx will give you a basic
idea of how this works in 2.0 Asp.NET.  4.0 is nearly identical minus the
few unnecessary modules.

You can set specific permissions on urls using the <location
path="login.aspx"> configuration. You would drop a system.web and
authorization to allow all users.

For the default authorization, you would simply set deny users=* under

Hope that helps!
