I have a asp.net MVC web app that is using a session id for the users session and if that id is expired the user gets a session timeout message.
Here is my issue, I have a user that logs into the site and as soon as he logs in, he get the session timeout issue. Right now he's the only user that is getting this error message, no other users are getting this message. I had him clear his IE history,
cookies, etc, I even had him reboot his pc to make sure all his connections are closed. When is pc rebooted I had him open IE and try to log into the site again, and again he got the session timeout error message.
The strange thing is that, he logged in from a different PC and got the session timeout message when using IE, I had him use Firefox from the same pc and he was able to log into the site.
What could cuase his session to timeout as soon as he logs into the site? I'm running out of ideas and things to check

has he disabled cookies?
the sessionid is held in a cookie so if that value (cookie) isnt persisted between each request, then they will keep getting a new session.

they're enabled because he can access the site in the morning, someone else logs into the site and then he can no longer access the site.

Session cookies are different than forms authentication cookies. Two different cookies, thus two different timeouts.
