Session problem in IE

I'm building a login portal in PHP that authenticates on one domain and then uses SOAP to start a session on another domain.

The SOAP call sends the userid, which is saved as a session variable on the destination server.

The SOAP call gets a session id back, which is forwarded to the destination server in the url. The destination server then starts the session using the session id that was sent.

This works fine in Firefox, but for some reason it does not work in IE.

It used to work fine and the only thing that has changed is an Apache upgrade to Apache 2.2.

When I echo $_COOKIE['PHPSESSID'], then it prints a different session id.

I can't figure out what has happened.

Any help would be hugely appreciated.

I think it's IE's problem :)
anyway do you use any web debugging tools?
use this

Look at the HTTP activity and check if your portal not sending a new session ID until the browser makes a HTTP request that does not include the session ID.

maybe that's the case
