ASP Session lost in IFRAME?

Hello,

I have a project in which I'm trying to embed one site, that uses
session stored variables, inside an IFRAME in another site (which for
that matter doesn't even use sessions).

Problem is, that it doesn't always save the session. When I try to
access it from some computers, I have no problem, the session variable
is stored and I can browse the site in the IFRAME and everything's ok,
but on other computers, the session variable value simply disappears.

To simulate the situation, assume that the two following html trees are
the site that goes into the IFRAME:

(called test.asp):

<html><head><ti tle>test session</title></head>
<body>
<%
response.write "session var should be 123. var=" & session("var") &
"<br/>"
%>
<a href="test2.asp " >blah</a>
</body></html>

(called test2.asp):

<html><head><ti tle>test session</title></head>
<body>
test2<br/>
<%
response.write "session var should be empty. var=" & session("var") &
"<br/>"
session("var")= 123
response.write "session var should be 123. var=" & session("var") &
"<br/>"
%>
</body></html>

The following html tree simulates the other site with the first site
embedded in it (and they're not in the same domain...):

<html>
<head><body></body></head>
<body>
blah blah<br>
<iframe id="InnerIframe " src="test.asp" width=600 height=400></iframe>
<br>blah blah<br>
</body>
</html>

Again - this works when I work on one machine (WinXPSP2, IE6 or
FF1.5xx) but doesn't work on many other machines (one I tested it on -
Win2003 server, IE6).

Does anyone have any idea??

Thanks in advance,
R. Green

I have an mypage.asp page with a button, one can access this page only if Session("smth") = 1. There is also an empty iframe in this page (src is not specified). When I click the button I will fill the iframe with a page (src = 'another.asp'). For security reasons I check the login session in another.asp and Session("smth") is empty no matter I have logged before.

Hello: I was not able to find a regular ASP group, so I posted this here instead. I have a web app which is actually just ASP using VBScript as the server-side language, running on IIS6. Users will log into the site and enter in large amounts of data in forms and submit this data to be saved to the database. Problem is, sometimes they submit the data after the session has timed out. This makes them very angry when they have just...

In javascript code on MyPage.aspx, I set a hidden IFRAME's source url: myframe.location.href = 'someotherpage.aspx'; If the session has timed out, preventing someotherpage.aspx from being loaded into the IFRAME, where can that error condition be trapped? Thanks Timo

I'm building an application wich should be used by other websites inside an iFrame. My app stores some sessionvariables, but sometimes in IE (6 and 7) IIS seems to restart the session on each pageload. It does this when I post the page, or request the page, no matter what. My sessionId is changing, wich prevents me from storing for example a shoppingcart in the users session. Weirdest thing is that it works fine in Firefox (never saw a...

Hi, We have a simple ASP.NET web application where one of the Session variables, called Session("SSO_ID") gets created and assigned a value (equal to the HTTP_HRID request variable value), inside the Session_Start event of the global.asax.vb file, since this variable is accessed by almost all the pages in the project. Besides this variable, there are other session variables which are set in the various aspx pages, as needed.
