    PHP SESSION not populating in IE (works on other machine)


    I have this problem. I am running IIS 6.0/Windows 2003/MSSQL. The anonymous access is off and IIS takes the user authentication data from Active Directory.

    it then populates some server variables (only in IIS, as i found) like AUTH_USER which has the username with which user was logged in through Active Directory.

    I created this small application in PHP and it worked on my machine (in both Firefox and IE 6.0)

    But, when i tested it on a different machine, it din't populate the $_SESSION array. I can the variables (and values) when i use phpinfo()

    both IE's (mine and that machine) has the EXACT same build.

    Can you please suggest what can i do to solve this problem?

    Just to be clear, the faulty browser doesn't populate $_SESSION at all. nothing is there.

    Check the security settings in IE, if the level is set to highest ( accept no cookies ). Then session variables will not work.

    In the hands of the inexperienced or uneducated,
    the results can be disastrous.
    While the professional can tame, master even conquer.
