in reply to CGI Session Problems on Win 98/ IE 6

I thank you all for your time qnd replies. We have located the culprit. All of the folks who were able to use the application either had edited their Windows etc\HOSTS file to map the IP to a name OR were accessing the app via its brand new domain name. The person who was unable to access the application was attempting to do so by IP only. eg http://666.666.666.66

Our session cookies cannot handle the IP by itself as a name.
Thank you very much!
