Maintain Session State Across Domains

Hello All:

I am writing an ASP.NET application that will take the user to PayPal to
make some payments. Before going to PayPal, I collect relevant user
information and store it in a session state slot. I'm using InProc session
state. After the user goes through the paypal site, the session information
I collected / saved is gone.

Is there a way to maintain state across domains without resorting to
ugliness like saving the session info to temporary files on the server, etc.?

To my knowledge, this should not be an issue unless you are linking
application pages accross non-secure (port 80) and secure (port 443) ports on
your webserver. If you are linking between secure and non-secure, the session
var's will not be maintained.

For example, are you collection the session vars on a secure page, directing
to PayPal, and having PayPal redirect to a non-secure page?

Hope this helps... Rich

Hi all, We have about 10 different domains that are linked very closely and we want to identify and keep track of every single user that surfs our websites by the use of sessions. The problem is how to keep track of the session ID across domains. - cookies don't work because not acepted by 40 % of or users and cookies don't work across domains

Ok, I know that .net inherently does not share session data across asp.net projects, but is there any decent work around to this. We already have a big chunk of our application using the asp.net session object (using state service). I'd like to start breaking out our functionality into component projects, but I'd like to get this session issue worked out first. Any ideas?? I found this article , but it sounds like kind of a pain.

It seems that my site is losing session information when using Server.Transfer. I have a page called PictureGallery.aspx. It takes an argument which is an index id, so it would look like PictureGallery.aspx?id=30 to display gallery 30. In this way I have a database driven picture gallery. To improve indexing, I put code in Global.asax to allow me to get to the same page with a url like this: Pictures_30.aspx. There is no...

I've been looking at two approaches for the maintenance of Session state for a Web Service application. One approach uses the old familiar Session object which I've used in the past for Web applications. As far as I can see, the Session approach is non-standard since Web Services are supposed to be agnostic with respect to their clients. It seems that cookies are outside the Web Service standard; therefore, such a Web Service application...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
