Losing Session Attributes - OK on localmachine, not across network

My app is deployed on Tomcat 5.5. This is my first struts app.

In an Action class I�m setting an ArrayList into the session object like this:

arrayList = db.getStateList();
request.getSession(false).setAttribute("stateList", arrayList);
//print session id for later comparison
System.out.println("session = " + request.getSession(false).getId());

Then I forward to a .jsp like this:

return (mapping.findForward("success"));

If I run this app from the same machine that�s running Tomcat, everything is fine. If I run it from another machine on my LAN, when I get to the .jsp, I have a different session id and (of course) all my session attributes are gone.

javax.servlet.http.HttpSession sess = session;
System.out.println("session = " + sess.getId());

THINGS I THINK I�VE RULED OUT:

I invoking this app w/ a URL like http://win2003_server:8080/MyApp/ (not an IP addr) � I read posts where folks were using an IP addr and it was getting translated to a machine name based on an entry in a hosts file and Tomcat thought it was a different host and created a new session.

I�m using a <html:form> tag � I read posts where people were using a regular old <form> tag in a struts app an having problems.

I can�t imagine it would be a session timeout problem because my Action forwards straight to the .JSP. My whole test takes about 30 seconds.

I believe I�ve enabled cookies properly. In my browser (IE) menu under Tools-Internet Options->Privacy->Advanced I checked �Override automatic cookie handling�, clicked �Accept First-party cookies�, �Accept third-party cookies�, and checked �Always allow session cookies�.

Like I said, this is my first struts app and my first time administering Tomcat, so don�t hesitate to point out things that may seem obvious.
Thanks.

i think I've learned a little more about what's going on in my situation. I'm using the Tigra menu compenent in my JSP's. It looks like it generates regular old <a> anchors instead of <html:link> tags and from what I've read, it's the <html:link> tags that append jsessionid=xyz to your links. I tried modifying the statement where it does:

document.write (
'<a id="e' + o_root.n_id + '_'
+ this.n_id +'o" class="' + this.getstyle(0, 0) + '" href="' + this.a_config[1] + '"'
+ (this.a_config[2] && this.a_config[2]['tw'] ? ' target="'
+ this.a_config[2]['tw'] + '"' : '')
+ (this.a_config[2] && this.a_config[2]['tt'] ? ' title="'
+ this.a_config[2]['tt'] + '"' : '') + ' style="position: absolute; top: '
+ this.n_y + 'px; left: ' + this.n_x + 'px; width: '
+ this.getprop('width') + 'px; height: '
+ this.getprop('height') + 'px; visibility: hidden;'
+' z-index: ' + this.n_depth + ';" '
+ 'onklick="return A_MENUS[' + o_root.n_id + '].onklick('
+ this.n_id + ');" onratout="A_MENUS[' + o_root.n_id + '].onratout('
+ this.n_id + ');" onratover="A_MENUS[' + o_root.n_id + '].onratover('
+ this.n_id + ');" onmousedown="A_MENUS[' + o_root.n_id + '].onmousedown('
+ this.n_id + ');"><div id="e' + o_root.n_id + '_'
+ this.n_id +'i" class="' + this.getstyle(1, 0) + '">'
+ this.a_config[0] + "</div></a>\n"
);

to do this instead:

document.write (
'<html:link styleId="e' + o_root.n_id + '_'
+ this.n_id +'o" class="' + this.getstyle(0, 0) + '" href="' + this.a_config[1] + '"'
+ (this.a_config[2] && this.a_config[2]['tw'] ? ' target="'
+ this.a_config[2]['tw'] + '"' : '')
+ (this.a_config[2] && this.a_config[2]['tt'] ? ' title="'
+ this.a_config[2]['tt'] + '"' : '') + ' style="position: absolute; top: '
+ this.n_y + 'px; left: ' + this.n_x + 'px; width: '
+ this.getprop('width') + 'px; height: '
+ this.getprop('height') + 'px; visibility: hidden;'
+' z-index: ' + this.n_depth + ';" '
+ 'onklick="return A_MENUS[' + o_root.n_id + '].onklick('
+ this.n_id + ');" onratout="A_MENUS[' + o_root.n_id + '].onratout('
+ this.n_id + ');" onratover="A_MENUS[' + o_root.n_id + '].onratover('
+ this.n_id + ');" onmousedown="A_MENUS[' + o_root.n_id + '].onmousedown('
+ this.n_id + ');"><div id="e' + o_root.n_id + '_'
+ this.n_id +'i" class="' + this.getstyle(1, 0) + '">'
+ this.a_config[0] + "</div></html:link>\n"
);

but it hasn't seemed to help. If anyone has any ideas for me I'm all ears. Also, if there's a different menu component someone recommends for struts apps I would be interested.
Thanks.
