Cookies and Session Cookies are two different things. They can disable
regular cookies and the Session still works, but if they disable
Session Cookies then the Sessions don't work.

What's the difference between regular cookie and session cookie? The cookie type that we can disable in IE is regular cookie?

please advise. Thanks!

AFAIK, the only difference is that a session cookie expires and is
deleted at the end of a session. A non-session cookie will have an
expiration date somewhere in the future, possibly the very distant
future.

There's a checkbox to "Always allow session cookies". From IE, choose
Tools|Internet Options, click the "Privacy" tab and click the
"Advanced" button. The checkbox is the last control on the resulting
dialog.

Try Googling for the results:
http://www.google.com/search?sourcei...ession+cookies

You might also try searching Microsoft for more info, but here's a link that
should answer your question:

Hi,

Please refer to this topic in MSDN: "Nine Options for Managing Persistent
User State in Your ASP.NET Application". You can get it by searching the
title in MSDN. Though it applies to ASP.NET, you can refer to it for some
difference between session and cookie.

If your talking about asp.net, yes the session will still work without cookie. What happens is that asp.net will recognize that user will not accept cookies, and will instead put session id in a query variable (on the URL)

Again if you are using asp.net, check the cookieless option on the (?page, ?web.config)
