Session management not working for me in an exceptional cond

I have an RoR application(parent) which can be used to kickstart other
RoR
applications(child).
A user can log in to parent RoR and then start child RoR’s and then
visit
that RoR using one of the links provided in parent RoR; I have following
html code is parent RoR list page for visiting an child RoR

I start parent RoR at 3000 port and then I visit it using IE (
http://localhost:3000/ror1)
on the list page of ror1 when I click Application1 button, a new browser
window opens which shows RoR2 correctly; but the my RoR1 gets disturbed,
when I try to view any other page in ror1, it throws me back to the
login
window of ror1(in the controller of ror1, I have specified a
before_filter
:authorize which checks if user has logged in using session[:user_d])
My question is that why the session of parent RoR gets reset after
opening a
new browser(with URL http://localhost:3001/…)??

One observation: when I invoke RoR1 by http://my-machine-name:3000/ror1
and
then open child ror’s the session of ror1 does not break… when I change
the
code above the invoke new application using my machine name instead of
“localhost” session does not break provided I have invoked ror1 with
localhost.

What I suspect is somehow the session is getting moved from parent to
child
window.

Any help is appreciated.

Yeah your sessions are stepping on each other. What i recommend is

that you set up some aliases in your /etc/hosts file so that you can
use different domains names for each of your apps.

in /etc/hosts

127.0.0.1 ror1 ror2 ror3

THis way you can use urls like:

http://ror1:3000
http://ror2:3001
http://ror3:3002
