Authentication ticket not working between applications?

Posts: n/a
Hi, Any help would be greatly appreciated as I've reached wits end
with this problem....

I have two web apps. The main one is written in 1.1 and the
second one I want to call from the first one is written in

I have defined a static key in both apps (same key!) and made them
persistent. In the 2.0 app I added the attribute
decryption=3DES so that it can decode the ticket written by the 1.1 (the main application).

I want to be able to log into my main app and then should I call the
second app in a new brower window I don't want to have to log in again
to the second app. Currently, it seems that the second app doesn't
recognize the ticket written by the first app. When I call the second
app in a new browser window I am being redirected to the login page.
Once I login to the second app I can close it down, call the second
app again (using the exact same procedure) and I DONT have to enter my
username/password. I don't understand what I am doing wrong in that
the second app doesn't seem to recognize the authorization ticket
unless it is that app that created it...

I have done quite a bit of research and I thought all I had to do was
define static keys and add the decryption=3DES attribute to the 2.0 app so that it can decifer the ticket written out by the 1.1 app. I guess I am missing something...

Do you have any ideas on how to get this to work?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
