CGI Session Problems on Win 98/ IE 6by jerrygarciuh (Curate)
|on Feb 20, 2004 at 15:23 UTC||Need Help??|
jerrygarciuh has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am developing a largish on-line learning tool which utilizes CGI::Session to store some state information in a session cookie. I should mention that while our team is developing this we are running seperate CVS copies on different ports. So our testers are accessing this app via http://mysite.com:2311 or :3669 etc. This is working very well under OS X using Safari and Camino and also under XP Pro on IE 6 and NN 4.7 and NN 7.02.
However, one of our testers is using IE 6 on Win 98 and is finding that his state is never properly saved and does not persist. CGI::Session does not have any reported bugs on CPAN but we are hoping some monk has experienced a gotcha with this module before and can advise us where to look for issues. I know some are saying "Where is the code?" and my response (for now at least) is that I am not allowed to post even dummy code, my apologies.
Any information or similar experiences would be greatly appreciated!TIA
