    ASP .NET is not fully compatible with earlier versions of ASP, so most of the old ASP code will need some changes to run under ASP .NET.

    To overcome this problem, ASP .NET uses a new file extension ".aspx". This will make ASP .NET applications able to run side by side with standard ASP applications on the same server.

    As suggested by Rama_krishna in the post above, ASP and ASP.Net can co-exist on the same server. The problems that you need to be prepared for is the session variables of both will not be shared, so you might have to use session handling using SQL Server or use Cookies to store user preference data.

    Advantages of moving the session handling into Database
    1. Even if the user gets session timed out, the shopping cart or other details of the previous session can be retrieved.
    2. Accident Closing of the browser window will also retrieve session objects on next login.

    1. Using Cookies is not a good method as many of the internet users are not very particular in keeping their browsers not to accept cookies another resource on managing session using webservices
