Application outside facebook that uses Facebook API

Application outside facebook that uses Facebook APIHello everybody,
I would like to create an application like this one

http://www.moochspot.com/

In order to use it, someone goes to this site, it then redirects the user to facebook in order to login, and (supposed we have a successful login) then the user gets a token from facebook when he returns to the site, so the site can use facebook API...

Can I use Facebook .NET for that?? If so, can anyone give me a hint on how to do it? Thanx

Here's a hint:

<fb:FacebookApplication id="FacebookApp" ApplicationName="Your App" Mode="IFrame" EnableExternalBrowsing="true" runat="server"/>

Then it's just a matter of checking to see whether you have a Facebook session and redirecting somewhere for that. Your best bet is to ask your question in the Facebook Developer Forum since it's more of a general process question than one specific to Facebook.NET. Plus there's a lot more people there and you'd likely get a quicker response.

Thanx man for your answer, I tried to do it using Facebook.NET, but I didn't get it to work... I finally made it work using Facebook Developer Toolkit.
I used Fiddler to see what is going on with moochspot for a successful login, I followed the same path... If somebody wants info, feel free to ask me :-)

Oh, I have also posted in the facebook forum, without getting an answer...

Check here :-)
