[mod_python] Newbie ?s regarding sessions

I found a few answers by experimentation. AuthenHandler results in a
login pop-up and that's not what I want. I am trying to use a form to
login. I tried session object and have been able to distinguish whether
it is the same session or not on a reload. How can I have this session
object be available to multiple browser pages? Should I pass it around?

Subject: [mod_python] Newbie ?s regarding sessions


I am attempting to create a login page and want to get to a point where
I can do the following. A) Login a user and redirect to website's
index.html, on failure redirect to loginFailed.html. B) Maintain user
session for 3 minutes and then force the user to re-login  C) Once
logged in, if the user is in-active for more than 3 minutes, then force
the login page back again when the user takes some action.


Do I have to use authenHandler for this or can I just use publishHandler
combined with sessions and cookies. All suggestions are welcome.
