Intranet server is not session tracking enabled! What now!

Hello there!
I am rather knew to Servlets. My project manager wanted me to come up with a technique how to record/track client/browser behaviour on the local intranet. I did some research and found session tracking to be most appropiate. Now I have been informed that "enabling session tracking on our intranet server (where our core intranet web apps run) is not currently possible".
Are there any other ways to solve this problem with servlets? Please help!!!

HttpSession Object is just one way to do session tracking of clients. If your webserver is not able to use this, you can use any of the other ways.
Html rewrite can be used, thats where you constantly place a hidden parameter in each form on the html pages to carry 'session' information between requests.
Cookies can be used, though this requires that all the clients have browsers with cookies enabled. Quite a few larger companies really frown on the use of cookies.
Hope this helps

Thanks for both of your speedy responses!
This is my first job as a Java programmer so I am very new to all of this. We had a meeting again and it was decided to do the following: The application needs to log (not session tracking) hits plus logging additional info such as where the hits come from and where they are going next. The servlet needs to get a request through alias URL rewriting and then redirect to Dominio stored pages. My duty now is to first write a "High Level Business Requirement Documentation" and then start coding.
Any tips or advice? Would really appreciate it!
Thanks guys!
