I have several different sites that reside on the same server(virtual sites with the same I.P.). I would like to issue my members one username/password and keep them logged in across all of our sites.

Hi,

You can use cookies as your i.p doesn't change so the cookies in http://www.server.com will be available in http://virual.server.com

Regards,
Meet

an easy solution would be to place a session ID in the URL's on all of the links, or if you wanted nice neat looking URL's then you could try something like iframes to log in to all servers at the same time, but that wouldn't be too cross-browser compatible
