Session Variables and IIS - ASP Components

Hello Everyone: In my ASP application that I am currently working on, using IIS 5.0 on Windows 2000 Pro, I am having problems with my session variables. My code is all fine, because it has been run on someone else's computer, and also up on Brinkster. If I say: Session("UserName") = currentuser ....then I can read that on the page that I declared it, but when I try: <%Response.Write Session("UserName")%> ....from another page, it's empty. I am pretty sure this has to do with some configuration in IIS. Can anyone make any suggestions? Thank-you Sincerely, Kevin Parkinson...

    Default Session Variables and IIS

    Hello Everyone:
    In my ASP application that I am currently working on, using IIS
    5.0 on Windows 2000 Pro, I am having problems with my session variables. My
    code is all fine, because it has been run on someone else's computer, and
    also up on Brinkster. If I say:

    Session("UserName") = currentuser

    ....then I can read that on the page that I declared it, but when I try:

    <%Response.Write Session("UserName")%>

    ....from another page, it's empty.

    I am pretty sure this has to do with some configuration in IIS.
    Can anyone make any suggestions?

    Thank-you
    Sincerely,
    Kevin Parkinson

    Make sure the folder (or a parent folder) where your ASP is located is set
    as an application.
