I get the following error when testing the PassThrough module:

Server Name: ECON

Configuration is like this:

The "target" is set on a page within a Forum, where I put the Source DB Connetction to "Server=(....)Database=..... etc." (I have also tried with only the connection name from the web.config). I have also checked the "Synchronize Security Roles:" option.

In the "source" I put the URL of the page with the Forum module.

When trying to connect, I get the above error in the Log Viewer. Also, the user in _not_ created (I have checked the "UserPortals" table in th BD)

The user in the source portal is created using the minimal requirements (first, last, user, pass, mail)


Thank you,

This looks like a bug - Can you please provide the following info so I can try to track it down:

1.  What "source" portal version are you using?  DNN 2.1.2, or DNN 3?  (I can see that your target portal is DNN 3.1).  I need to know this because the code that executes in the PassThrough Target is different depending on the version of the source portal.

Both source and target portals are DNN 3(1.3 I think) on the same server, using the same DB. The target (in which the error occurs) id installed in a virtual dircetory as the first portal installed, while the source is a child portal of the first one.

Hope this helps...

Can I confirm:  Is the Source DNN instance and the Target DNN instance the same instance of DNN, but the target is a child portal and source is in the "root" portal?

Hi Catalin,

I have done some more testing, and have reproduced the problem when using PassThrough to pass from a "root" portal to a "child" portal.  I have identified the problem, and believe I have fixed it, but the solution needs some more testing.

Are you working in a test/development portal?  If so, I can email you the test versions to work with - just email me at and mention this forum post.
