Session State and Session Length Cookies

Hello Everyone,

I'm currently developing an application that is running on a shared hosting server. In the future it will be on a dedicated server but that could be a ways away.
I'm running into a problem where the server is resetting the Session State and clearing my session length cookies seemingly at random. Both work fine on my test machines but start having problems once I run the application on the shared server.
Short of declaring a cookie and having it last for a set time (like one hour) and then constantly checking and re-establishing the session, is there a way I can force the Session State to remain from being cleared? Or is there a way I can stop the server from clearing the Session State and/or session length cookies?
I know it's a somewhat vague question. I hope someone else has encountered this problem before and found a nice way around it.
Thanks for the help!

Unable to make the session state request to the session state server
Hi all, I'm working on the website http://universityauction.net and I was using session variables using InProc session mode to manage session state. This worked fine until I put the website in a load balanced environment, as inproc sessions get lost when jumping from server to server. I decided to move to a state server mode, so I changed my web.config to: <sessionState             mode="StateServer"             stateConnectionString="tcpip=123.456.7.8:42424"      ...

Session variables vs. Session States
What is the difference and in what situations are they used. Thanks, Mattypee A session state (the state of your session) holds your session variables. If your session state expires (due to inactivity) then you lose your session variables...and any other info stored for that session. If you need to store USER specific information within a web app, then session variables are one(of several) ways to do it. MajorCatsMajorCats Is there any code that you could show that would give an example? Thanks, Mattypee example of what? reading and writing session variables? ...

cookies and session state
Guys, I know this is pretty basic but this has confused me a little bit. Requesting your insights on this. We always know asp.net recognizes unique user sessions through a default cookie, which it sends with the first user request. The browser stored it and sends it with each subsequent request to the same web site. So far so good. Now the queries are: 1. What if somebody disables cookies on their machines? Logically, sessions should not work. However, i tried it out on a project on my development machine and even though the cookies were disabled, everything kept running smoothly as bef...
