using FormsAuthentication in Asp.Net

To try Forms Authentication for initial stage you need to make it simple configuration as below,

<authentication mode="Forms" >
<forms loginUrl="~/Login.aspx" defaultUrl="~/default.aspx" protection="None" timeout="20"></forms>
<deny users="?"/>
<allow users="*"/>

In your code, you have mentioned loginUrl as 'default.aspx', but you have mentioned that you need to go login.aspx.
