IE does not accept session cookies

I came across this weird problem:

1. Session state stops working after the app is deployed to another server
because
IE does not accept cookies.

2. It works if cookieless="tru e" in the web.config

3. Yes, I tried IE - Tools - Privacy - Accept All Cookies and also
Override automatic cookie handling, Always allow session cookes

I don't know what else it might be - IE simply does not accept the cookies
from that server
regardles of all settings.

It may have somethings to do with the server being in the different AD
domain..

Has anyboy seen this problem?

Thanks,

Well, IE certainly does accept Session cookies and all other cookies. Unless
you can post some sample code, we'll just have to guess. Maybe you aren't
setting the domain and / or path properties of the cookies?

I am not setting the cookies, I am setting session which may or may not use
the cookies.
Session state by default requires ASP_SessionStat e cookie but can also be
cookieless
in which case sesssion id is apended to url.

There is not whole lot of code to post:
=====
protected void btnSetSession_C lick(object sender, EventArgs e)

{

Session[Key] = "123";

}

protected void btnGetSession_C lick(object sender, EventArgs e)

{

if (Session[Key] != null)

{

lblValue.Text = string.Format(" Value:'{0}' Mode:'{1}'
SessionId:'{2}' " +

" CookieMode:'{3} ' IsCookieless:{4 }",

Session[Key].ToString(),

Session.Content s.Mode,

Session.Content s.SessionID,

Session.CookieM ode,

Session.Content s.IsCookieless) ;

}

else

lblValue.Text = string.Format(" Session[\"{0}\"] is null!", Key);

}

=============== ======

The code works on my machine, but when deployed to another machine which
belongs to a different AD domain, stops working unless the session mode is
changed to cookieless in web.config.

Here is the problem:

When running on another machine somehow ASP.NET determines the IE does not
support cookies and does even send the session cookie to the browser, I
checked it with Fidler.

I have no idea why ASP.NET decides that IE does not support cookies even
after I explicitly allow all cookies in IE settings.

I have seen people experiencing this issue and yet the only workaround is to
change session state to be cookieless. While it is a solution, I am trying
to get to the bottom of the problem and also in some scenarios you may not
want to run cookieless session state.

Hello all, This is baffling me. I am starting a session and I know it is setting a cookie on my computer - I called getallheaders() and see that it is setting the cookie, and it is also accessible in $_COOKIE. I cleared all cookies in my Cookies folder before starting the session, and everytime I run the script it does not create a cookie in the folder. For testing I even set the browser to accept all cookies to make sure. ...
