multi-domain asp session object

I'm afraid here's a tricky one: I'm loading an ASP-application inside of an IFRAME. The ASP-application uses the session-object, in order to check whether a user-session has expired. The ASP-application works fine when visiting it directly, but from inside an IFRAME, IE obviously refuses to accept the ID-cookie being sent by the server. I assume this is a multi-domain problem, since the website holding the IFRAME is on a domain different from the one of the ASP-application. Now unfortunately, we can't just put both the website and the ASP-application on the same domain, so I'm trying to find another solution. With no result thusfar :(.

Anyone interested in cracking this puzzle? :)

I agree with wakie, he made the same comment to a question I had a few weeks ago and xmlhttp worked excellent.

Actually there are a few ways to do this, xmlHTTP will work great,but you can also reference a function in the parent or a variable to check if the session variable is set.

That is generally what we do, but I like XMLHttp.

Thanx for the info, this is interesting stuff(never heard of xmlhttp before :$). It turned out our site didn't work because of a bug/feature ;) in IE6:
