Blas, Check that you have clicked the button named "Create" on the "Directory" tab of the Internet Services Manager (MMC) module. To get there: 1) Click Start 2) Programs 3) Administrative Tools 4) Internet Services Manager 5) tab name = "Directory" Then, about 3/4 down is a text box named "Application Name:". If its grayed out, then the button to the right of that text box will be named "Create". Click it. If its named "Remove" then try to click that once, and then when it is removed and the button is named "Create" once again, click it again. This has bit me before. There is also a good article to read here with tips and pointers concerning session variables not sticking: http://www.aspfaq.com/show.asp?id=2157 I hope that helps you, or someone else has a more accurate solution for you! -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Blas J.

Please Help! To all, I found a page with your email addresses on the web and thought I'd ask for help. I'm having an issue where ASP sessions on my website are working when I access the page on the server with the http://localhost/ address, but not when accessing from outside the server via the web. Any clues, tips, or reason why this would happen? It's simple code. I'm just initializing the session with a string and calling it from a different page. Sometimes it works from the outside, but I don't know what triggers that behavior. Here is example of the code and session mode. <%Session("example") = ("examplestring")%> <-- in one page And <%Response.Write(Session("example"))%> <-- on a different page Session mode <sessionState mode="InProc" cookieless="false" timeout="20" /> I would appreciate any advice. Thank You!
