session variables not working on one machine

    Hi. I have a website written in asp that uses session variables. On
    one workstation the session variable always comes back as an empty
    string, like it doesn't exist. What could cause this? Is there a
    browser setting or some type of security that can control whether
    session variables are created?

    Thanks.

    Yes. Session cookies need to be enabled. Ask for help with this in a
    forum devoted to the browser the user is using.
