Passing Session variables across Browser windows.

HI! How can I pass variables between different windows in IE? I noticed that when I open a new window using ""URL")", the session variables for the original window are not valid in the new window. How can I work around this?
I am using ASP with VBscript.

you can place a cookies with all the variables you need , by one page  , and then read them by other pages
Really, does the URL different with you parent window?
For example, the parent use, but the new opened window use
If yes, then you can not get the session variable. For the browser think you are querying a new site.

I managed to solve the problem by using query strings to pass the session variables to the new window.

Thanx anyway.
