Default will the session works?


If the coockies on the client browser is disable will the session object works fine?

It is always safe to assume, not that the old way is wrong, but that there may be a better way...

When a new session is created, a unique cookie is created and sent to the client. This cookie then acts as an identifier so that the server knows which set of session information on the server is associated with which requests.

So it's important to note that while all information in a session is actually stored on the server and not transmitted to the browser, the fact remains that cookies need to be enabled in order for the server to track a users session.

Using this combination of server side storage and cookies, ASP provides us with a nice neat way to use this information.

You need only allow "per-session cookies". ie. in the privacy tab -> advanced settings, you can block both first party cookies and third party cookies and check "always allow session cookies" (I am talking about IE6.0 configuration). This will block cookies. But session will continue to work.
