One of our clients is reporting issues with AOL users. Specifically,
they are 'losing their cart'.
We run a 3-web, 1 db system, with a load balancer.
We cookie them and session them as well as store their items in a db table.
However, due to AOL's ip changes on the fly, the AOL customer's are
losing their carts. The new ip hits the load balancer as what appears
to it as a new session, and may put it on one of the other web servers.
Anyone dealt with this before?
