Sessions and IP numbers


Recommended Posts

Can any of the developers (or anyone else) advise me on this.


Suppose an office has a single internet connection - that allows multiple users to access the internet.


Those users would then be sharing the same IP number wouldn't they?


Will this cause a problem with the sessions in OSC? And lead to mixed up shopping carts ?


I heard somewhere that it's bad to implement php session control based on IP numbers for just this kind of reason.


How does OSC stack up on this ?

No, it will not cause any problems because the clients will connect on different ports.

Open both Netsape and Explorer you will see both browsers will have different session id's...

same principle.

Thanks for the advice - I was pretty sure it was OK as I'd looked at the session ID's using different browsers as you suggest - it's been something niggling in the back of my mind ...
