So you are trying to connect to a backend application from
some code running on the server that hosts the first app?
That of course is a completely different story.

The session is between the client and the first server.
The second server will not recognize the session cookie.
Single sign-on between servers is usually handled by a
different cookie. For example, some IBM products generate
LTPA cookies for SSO across hosts. The client will have
individual sessions with each server, but the user logs
in only once, all other servers recognize the LTPA cookie
(*not* the session cookie!)
In your case - if my assumption above is correct - you
will have individual sessions between client/server and
server/backend. You have to look for the SSO information,
not for the session cookie.

hope that helps,
