Hi All,

I am having a strange problem. When user accesses the link for Outlook Web access 2003(OWA) from my portal web-site and subsequently log sout from the OWA and comes back to a portal page, user gets session time-out error.

experts please help.

In general what could be reasons for abrupt session disruption when the timeout time has actualy not elapsed.

This does not belong in the JiG(advanced) forum and may be moved.

There are several possibilities. If your links include opening new windows this can sometimes lose sessions. Another possibility is that the sessions are being written to the same HTTP context, but this is less likely since I would assume the session tracking cookies have different names.

I'm not even sure this is a Java question...
