LTPA cookie not set

I am  trying the SSO using LTPA. I have Websphere 6.1 ND and created two profiles and each has the same LDAP as the Federated Repository. I enabled LTPA as per the documentation.
The servers are running on 9080 and 9081 ports.
I installed the PlantsByWebsphere sample application and changed the URL for a link within the page to point to other server.
For example, Assuming I am on 9080/PlantsByWebsphere, the link to 'Help' within the page is '9081/PlantsByWebsphere'.

I noticed that after authentication by first server, the LTPA cookie is not set. Hence, the SSO is not working.  

I could not find any help for this in the internet - for the reason that LTPA is not set. Did I miss any step?

Have been sruggling with this for about a day.

Yes. verified and I just followed the steps. BTW, I am not using a separate HTTP Server.
I have not enabled SSL for the server. Would that matter?

I noticed that the LTPA cookie is set only when accessing the Admin Console but not while running the application

No, LTPA does not require either SSL, or a stand-alone web server.

However, I presume that you are using this as a learning experience, rather than as
a "real" (i.e., production) system environment.  Right?

It is for PoC as we wanted to go real after this. I have opened a Websphere ticket and it is in Level 3 now.

The IBM support has come back saying that the LTPA is set only for a protected resource and would not be set for unprotected even when the authentication is forced.  IBM says it is by design though - http://docs.sun.com/source/816-6688-10/websphere.html - states that as a limitation.
