Sharepoint / Sessions / ASP.NET Application problem (URGENT)

I have a very strange problem with enabling sessions on my web server.

I have a Windows 2003 Web server running Sharepoint. Instead of adding a web part, I need to integrate a standard ASP.NET application.

This web application uses sessions and is running on a seperate web site (but the same server as the sharepoint portal) using a different port number.

I have been through loads of articles on the web, making sure that I have enabled session state for sharepoint in all sorts of web.config files, also including the HTTP Modules section.  

Here is the problem:

1: On the sharepoint server, under IIS, I can browse to the site and sessions work fine (it browses of course to localhost:portnumber).
2: I can surf to the IP:portnumber from my machine and sessions work fine (when the application is embedded in shareoint and when its not)
3: I can surf to the hostname:portnumber from my machine and sessions work fine (when the application is embedded in shareoint and when its not)
4: PROBLEM: I cannot browse to the domainname:portnumber from anywhere with sessions working.

In other words, when I use the domain name: portnumber, sessions don't work. If any ideas, great.

Many thanks!
