Hello Experts..
    I am working on asp page.. In this I am loosing session variables when I open a window as a popup. But the mejor problem is.. This was wokring fine earlier and now also it is working fine for all other machines except one with same configuration.
     This is happening only on one machine where Win2k and IE6 is installed, Only on this machine when i open a window as popup I am loosing the session variable.
    I checked most of the seetings related to Privecy Policy... but no outcome problem is still there.
I know that IE6 is bit more strict about cookies...

 Any help will be appericiated.........

Check your server log (but make sure that it is reporting cookies first). You should see that the request for the original page will have an ASPSESSION cookie listed and the same one should be present on the request for the popup page. If it is present then I'd suggest that you have a minor coding error. If on the otherhand it is missing then from memory I think that the browser concerned needs SP1 applying.

I meant SP1 for IE6. Anyhow was the session cookie present on all lines?
