Forced login request on EVERY admin action...

Please see my last question for some background.

I have installed the basic install package, have pushed it all to my host - Server Intellect - and did the initial setup.  This is intended to mainly be a sandbox area for now.  Site is live at http://terraninstitute.com.

I have been playing with this on my local machine and have been able to get quite a ways with setting up a site.  Now that it is installed fresh on a hosting service I am having a ton of admin problems.  For instance, I loaded the Advanced Menu module and am now trying to build out my menu structure.  I did a quick screen capture to show what I am seeing.  In this sequence, I try to Manage menu 'main', add a new menu item, fill in the blanks and then save it.  Voila - the system is forcing me to log in again and when I go check no menu item was saved!  http://screencast.com/t/8M6oNBKrp.

I am now frustrated and wanting to throw my computer out the window (little good that would do)...

Any ideas of what might be causing this or how to track it down myself???

Awesome!!  Ticket closed!

 

PS:  Added the web.config machine key as described and now it appears to be behaving correctly.
