I am developing a web application in ASP.NET 4.0. using ASP.NET membership.
The webapp is running perfectly well on local machine, but when I host the web application on a remote web server, the session times out in around 1 min. The membership module thus redirects to my home page for any page request after timeout.

I have tested using Cookies manager, the cookies from my remote site does not expire.
Timeout period on IIS is set to default 20 minutes.

Here is my web.config: [removed]

Don't include your entire file, only the relevant parts and when you do include something, FORMAT it.

Give details of your web.config and settings on your Application and IIS server

If the web.config is used in a working environment, it is unlikely the problem is there. How are you setting the IIS timeout? The Group, Session State page?

It likely isn't timing out but has an error somewhere. Look in your event log for errors or make sure this is in its own app pool. Something else is likely knocking it out.
