Authentication ticket not working between applications?

    Hi, Any help would be greatly appreciated as I've reached wits end
    with this problem....

    I have two web apps. The main one is written in asp.net 1.1 and the
    second one I want to call from the first one is written in asp.net
    2.0.

    I have defined a static key in both apps (same key!) and made them
    persistent. In the asp.net 2.0 app I added the attribute
    decryption=3DES so that it can decode the ticket written by the
    asp.net 1.1 (the main application).

    I want to be able to log into my main app and then should I call the
    second app in a new brower window I don't want to have to log in again
    to the second app. Currently, it seems that the second app doesn't
    recognize the ticket written by the first app. When I call the second
    app in a new browser window I am being redirected to the login page.
    Once I login to the second app I can close it down, call the second
    app again (using the exact same procedure) and I DONT have to enter my
    username/password. I don't understand what I am doing wrong in that
    the second app doesn't seem to recognize the authorization ticket
    unless it is that app that created it...

    I have done quite a bit of research and I thought all I had to do was
    define static keys and add the decryption=3DES attribute to the
    asp.net 2.0 app so that it can decifer the ticket written out by the
    asp.net 1.1 app. I guess I am missing something...

    Do you have any ideas on how to get this to work?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks in advance,
    Scott
