How session variables work question

Posted 10 September 2010 - 05:36 AM

I have a web site that uses one session variable and is used for keeping someone logged in for that session.

If a user is logged in and loses connection to the internet for a few seconds, will the session variables be lost?

The reason I ask this is because I'm hearing from one person that he is constantly kicked out. I know this person is "utilizing his resources" for his wifi internet connection at home so it's unreliable.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

If a user is inactive, by default, Session times out after 20 minutes.
A Session Identifier is issued to the person's browser in the form of a cookie (by default).
If the person has cookies turned off then they are going to have problems.
