Subject JSESSIONID problem.
Date Wed, 04 Feb 2004 22:52:46 GMT
Thanks. I have changed the subject because it better reflects the
problem after some analysis. Thanks to Papillon for suggesting to use
burp proxy. However, now I am at a loss to explain the behaviour after
analyzing the log from burp proxy.
When I run IE on my box and target TomCat on my box, and I click on a
link in my app which launches another window, the http header is:

======================================================
http://schughpc:8080  [10.32.2.41]
======================================================
GET /Workplace/FormServlet?cmd=blank&context=form HTTP/1.0
Accept: image/gif, image/x-xbitmap, image/jpeg, image/pjpeg,
application/vnd.ms-excel, application/vnd.ms-powerpoint,
application/msword, application/x-shockwave-flash, */*
Referer:
http://localhost:8080/Workplace/properties/DocumentForm.jsp?policyObject

se.jsp%3FwindowId%3DmainWindow&id=%7B8121190B-BF94-454D-92EB-2262A3FD71D
E%7D

Proxy-Connection: Keep-Alive
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR
1.0.3705)
Host: schughpc:8080


======================================================

Here you can see the JSESSIONID cookie is missing when it was present in
all the headers grabbed by burp proxy prior to this one.

When I run IE on another machine but still target TomCat on my machine,
the http header for the same request looks like:

======================================================
http://schughpc:8080  [10.32.2.41]
======================================================
GET /Workplace/FormServlet?cmd=blank&context=form HTTP/1.0
Accept: image/gif, image/x-xbitmap, image/jpeg, image/pjpeg, */*
Referer:
http://schughpc:8080/Workplace/properties/DocumentForm.jsp?policyObjectS

642C6DB6B60%7D&windowId=87588&policyId=%7B14CBF1E8-606C-4D7F-AE88-540335
681DD7%7D&returnUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fschughpc%3A8080%2FWorkplace%2FWcmBrowse
.jsp%3FwindowId%3DmainWindow&id=%7B8121190B-BF94-454D-92EB-2262A3FD71DE%
7D
Accept-Language: en-us
Proxy-Connection: Keep-Alive
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; .NET CLR
1.0.3705)
Host: schughpc:8080
Cookie: JSESSIONID=68AF13A9B0FE3C8A200BDB594E753ECC


======================================================

You can see the cookie is present.
The requests afterwards use this cookie and everything works fine.

However in the latter case (where the cookie is missing), the next
request receives a new cookie and everything starts falling apart.

IE on both machine is set up identically.

If anyone knows or has any suggestions as to the problem, it would be
much appreciated.

Thanks,

-- Sanjay

Try burp proxy (Thanks again Mr Yansheng Lin) to see differences. Your
server have only one ip ? No NAT on your network ? WAN adress ? My
problem is not the same but perhaps it can help you in research :

Good luck !
