Using a VM I installed Windows 2008 Server x64 and as the image below shows, added the IIS Role

and assigned all role features of IIS

alt text

But if I have an ASP.NET (aspx) page that does (C#)

Session["test-session"] = "A";

and read in other page

I always get nothing!

NOTE: I do have an entire ASP.NET web application, the example above is to be succinct and explicit on what is the problem I'm facing.

Can anyone know what do I have to do to the Server, so I can use the Session variables?

All help is greatly appreciated, Thank you

Found out that is something with Internet Explorer 8 and the absurd Security stuff.

As I installed Firefox and everything is ok.

I will post what are the setting to disable, maybe it could help anyone.
