issues with redirections in the login.aspx

  Asked By: Jeramy    Date: May 08    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2515

When an user attempts to log into the extranet, the redirection URL does not get properly formed. The browser is redirected to the following URL: http://_layouts/ExternalCollaboration/changeqa.aspx?ReturnUrl=/ The host header information is left out and as a result the browser displays a page not found error.

Is there a way to force the ReturnUrl parameter to include the host header information? Or, is there a parameter that I've missed during the deployment of the ECTS?

I had the same problem.

here's a workaround that works for us.
We give out the link in this format: extranet.domain.com/default.aspx
Then the login  page url  would be like this: extranet.domain.com/_layouts/..../login.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2fdefault.aspx
once the user  log on, it brings them to the path specified in the ReturnUrl.

This also works with subsites.
