YES in web.config saved in root directory of application

<configuration>
  <system.web>
    <sessionState mode="StateServer" stateConnectionString="tcpip=127.0.0.1:42424" />
  </system.web>
</configuration>

OR

<configuration>
  <system.web>
    <sessionState
       mode="SQLServer"
       sqlConnectionString="Server=127.0.0.1;UID=sa;PWD=secret" />
  </system.web>
</configuration>

The session object is the "per user" state object; while the Application_AuthenticateRequest is a mehtod that fires at the application level, rather than at the session level. If you try to access the session object here, I don't believe ASP .NET will have any way of knowing which user you are working with, and hence session returns null.

Try using the application state object; this is global to the application. So...

Application["MyStuff"] instead of  Session["MyStuff"]

Hi,

I believe my answer is technically accurate - of course I don't know if it helped or not...!

IMO the answer from skvikram describes how to set up your session state in different ways, but not how to access it.

The last (and to a lesser extent, the first) link provided by pradeepsudharsan describe a similar problem, so could have been useful also.
