The session and session ID is being reused between multiple browsers


M

Hi,

I have an internal asp.net 3.5 intranet application that includes only one
page.

Based on requirements, each user can open multiple browser window and use
the application.

The problem is when users open the second browser window, the session ID is
same as the 1st browser. That means once a session is created by the 1st
browser window, subsequent browsers use the same session. The only way to
have a new session ID is to close all of the browser windows and the open a
new one. Sessions are shared with the same type of browsers. (IE with IE, FF
with FF and Chrome with Chrome)

I verified that by enabling the trace in the page.

I went through the Microsoft kb article 899918
(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/899918) and I guess this is the default
behavior.

How can I change this behavior? How can I have one unique session (and
session ID) for each browser windows even they are opened simultaneously?

Thank you.Max

use cookieless sessions. the browser will share the session cookie as
you see. you can also code for this by having some transactionid in each
page.

Hi Bruce,

Thank you for help.

Is there any way to achieve this without cookie less sessions? My users
won't like the cookie less urls.

Also, I think this problem doesn't appear when pages are protected by forms
authentication.

Thanks again...Max

Hello Max,

Session are shared with the same type of browsers. Do you want to apply an
independent Session in each page(browser window)?
If that's what you want, please use ViewState instead of Session. ViewState
is used in the specific page and Session is used for the browser instance.
