New session created when moving between asps and asp pages

P: n/a

I am currently supporting a website that is a mix of asp and aspx pages. In one scenario I redirect the user from an asp page, to an aspx page, and then back to the asp page. When I return to the asp page, I find that *sometimes* a new session has been created. (I.e., session.sessionid is different. Thus, I lose session state, etc.). The session timeout is the default of 20. What is odd, is that on one development machine (Windows 2000 Pro, IIS 5.0), this exact same code works fine. But when I migrated the site to my new development machine (Windows XP Pro, IIS 5.1) it stopped working. My guess is that it has something to do with the version of IIS, the IIS settings, or the way I have the site configured on the new machine, since the code is identical. Does anyone have any ideas?

Just to be perfectly clear, I am NOT trying to share the session state between asp and apsx. (I know they each have their own sessions.) I am referring only to the asp session object here - a new asp session is created when returning from an aspx page. Any help would be most appreciated
