ASP Session lost in IFRAME?

P: n/a
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><title>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><title>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
