Application Login

not specifically a BE.NET question but if I have multiple BE.NET installs like

how can i force authentication at each application?  i.e. currently if Install1 has (user1,user2) defined, and Install2 only has (user3,user4) defined, if someone logs into Install1 as user1, they can then type http://host/BE.Install2 and the BE.Install2 will treat them as logged in even though their account doesn't exist. 

I'm sure this is something basic with the IIS config, but i'm kind of new to this.

You can accomplish this by having a unique cookie name for each BE installation.  I explained what needs to be changed once over in this other thread.

Btw, in that thread, I mentioned the .BLOGENGINEROLES cookie name could optionally be changed ... well on further thought, I'd definitely recommend changing that one too.
