    Default Unique session ID?

    How can i keep a unique session ID for each user. The automatic Session IDs are good until the App is restarted. At that point some of the numbers may be repeated. Is it necessary to have a AutoNumber type field in a database that will supply a totally unique number? And then call the database on the first page to provide that number and assign it as a Session ID variable?

    Get hold of a copy of the IIS-resource-kit book from MS. It has a chapter dealing with this issue. The recommendation is to let MTS generate a unique-userID.(fairly well explained) The advatage being that the id is unique even after the IIS is restarted. jouni@work.utfors.se
