Session.item not persisting when used with SSL (https)

I am using session.items to carry information from 1 page to another web project.  Works just fine when using HTTP but will not persist when using HTTPS.  Do I need to change a setting or is there a better way of doing this when using SSL.
Session.Item("CoNb") = cust
Session.Item("UserId") = useid
Session.Item("secLev") = rdr("SecurityLevel")
Session.Item("UpLine") = rdr("UpLine")

Ok, that didn't address my problem. I have session.items that need to remain from page to page on the website since they contain security and user info.  This has nothing to do with the URL calling the program.  How do I persist session.items from 1 web page to another on the same website when useing SSL?

There is no problem persisting the session from one page to the other in normal website so i would think its a security feature of SSL that it does not allow session to be persisted.

That is what we found.  Everything works fine when not using SSL.  ARe there changes that can be made to SSL or the program to allow items to persisit?

I doubt that. This is to ensure maximum security when using SSL and there should not be a way to bypass it.
