where are you checking user's rights? I mean how you are determining if a particular user has access to home/index ?

I use[Authorize]for all the controllers and for action links that doesn't need authorization i used [AllowAnonymous].

The problem occurs when a user explicitly typed the url without logging in

ok, until you find any solid solution, override AuthorizeCore redirect manually to unauthorize page. please let me know if you find any better solution

Sorry i did not understand, can you explain it more

you have to write your own authorize attribute, in that attribute, override AuthorizeCore method and check for your conditions and if no condition matches then redirect to un authorize page.

That setting sits in your web.config file.

<authentication mode="Forms">
  <forms loginUrl="~/PageToLogin/Login" timeout="2880" slidingExpiration="true" name=".ASPXAUTH_MyAuthenticationCookie" />

Hi Thanks Eduard Keilholz.I have added the following code
<forms loginUrl="~/User/Login" timeout="2880" slidingExpiration="true" name=".ASPXAUTH_MyAuthenticationCookie" />

Still its redirecting to http://localhost:2550/Account/Login?ReturnUrl=%2femployee%2findex

I dint mentionAccount/Login any where in theproject.I have removed all the files and folders related to "Accounts"

That is pretty strange...

Yes,Thats what i am confused,There are 2 web.config files,one is inside the view folder and one outside,which one is main

You generally leave the on in the view folder alone, only when you'll need this only if you customize razor. The one in the root of your mvc project is your friend.
