depending on what that data is, can you just set a cookie on the clients computer when the first visit that site that contains the data you want? again, this all depends if the data is sensitive or not.

as for sharing sessions between asp and aspx pages, it CAN be done, although its kind of tricky to implement. you'd be better off sharing that data between a database table that both apps have access to

No, it does not.  In addition, PHP sessions are completely separate from ASP sessions on IIS.

But how would i initiate a var in PHP, regardless of what page is accessed first?

By the way, does asp aspx share same sessions?

You have to include it in every page that needs it.  There are no automatic variables in PHP.

"By the way, does asp aspx share same sessions? "

Don't know.  Apparently not because this article tells you how to do it.

I used to put common things (which to be loaded while apps start)  in the config-load.php file and it could be included in all the pages so that it is accessible to do.
Ray PaseurCommented:
For shared data between ASP and PHP (or CF, for that matter) a shared file on the server may make sense.  I have seen ASP and PHP both use an MSSQL data base, so that may be a way of sharing session information, too.
