You could store session vars that are set on the NT box in mssql and then
pass them to the linux box with the session id in the querystring and then
have the linux box verify and fetch the session data from the MSSQL
server...problem solved. is where you can get the necessary
libs to connect to an mssql server from a linux box.  TDS stands for Tabular
Data Stream, the protocol developed for Sybase and used by mssql.

You could also setup an odbc connection to the mysql database on the NT box,
thereby bypassing the need for freeTDS.

Either way, I recommend storing the data in a db......hope this helps
