Do you have session cookies disabled?

From the MSIE menu, check:
Tools -> Internet Options -> Privacy (tab) -> Advanced (button).
On this screen there is a checkbox for ("Always allow session cookies").

Thanx Ben.

It was disabled on my system. It is working now. But few other problems are coming now.

Session is expiring with different timeout periods on different machines.

Application deployed on Atg 7 locally on my machine is getting timeout in around 5-7 mins.(In case when I am leaving the application unattended for 5-7 minutes.)

clients accesing application on my machine with (http://request) are getting timeout between 1-2 mins when unattended.

One more problem is there when accessing in mozila browser.

Session object has a different session id on different pages. It is not remainig consistent throughout on all web pages.

Any inputs will be great help.

Regards,
neeraj.

Thanks Ben

I was looking for what you said in Advanced tab. My mistake.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
