Default Session Timeout

Hope you guys can assist..

I have a couple of sessions which i am trying to manipulate which i currently use for passing vars.

I don't at pres use a global.asa file for setting variables as the sessions i use may vary on timeouts and i would prefer a more specific control over my sessions.(lack of any real knowledge of global.asa does not help).

My issue is on setting the session timeout threshold which should be a simple process, but my draconian testing seems to be providing little answers.

After reading tutorials on setting session timeouts the code is fairly simple.

Session.Timeout=35 ' 35 Minutes
How ever when added to my page with

Session("timeouttest") = "100"

If Session("timeouttest") = "" then
response.write "Session has timed Out"
End If
I seem to still be incurring the standard 20 min timeout.

I can set my IIS with a higher timeout threshold but no good for hosted servers so no go there and again i would prefer to control my timeouts more acurately.

The other option would be to use a temp cookie to pass the vars which may be the solution but i would still like to have a fuller understanding of session control before using this solution.

If anyone has a better understanding of session manipulation that would be a great help.
