I have an entire database driven site, two session vars are maintained throughout the site for types of authentication and the like. The issue is we have integrated some chat software, which runs on its own server, which is physically on the same server as my site, so the user is logged in and they can then do several things, of which one is chat, my concern is that if the chatter stays chatting for over 20 minutes, will the session expire, because *technically* they still have a session but i am not sure if they *actually* do. <BR><BR>I have not found much on this issue. <BR>clarifcation would be great as to what session scope is, or a good article on it would be nice otherwise.<BR>thanks<BR><BR>Zach
