We have installed php4.1.2 on iplanet 6.0 Webserver on a Solaris 8 OS.
I have searched high and low everywhere and somehow I have not being able to figure out why my session variables are not working properly even though I have installed the latest php 4.1.2. The following config options were used:

./configure' '-enable-sysvshm=yes' '--enable-sysvsem=yes' '--with-nsapi=/ecomm/iplanet/nes60/product' '--enable-libgcc'

Our application is running fine when we have register_globals=on.

But as soon as register_globals=off is set nothing seems to work.
I couldn't even get these simple scripts working where we have to pass variable values between php pages.
I have tried all approaches as listed below.
##################################
nn1.php

<?
$session_register["newvar"] = 123;
header("Location: nn2.php");
?>   

nn2.php

<?
echo $_SESSION["newvar"];
?>
####################################

Have even tried this variant of nn1.php
nn1.php and it still doesn't work.

<?
$_SESSION["newvar"] = 123;
header("Location: nn2.php");
?>   
#####################################

Urgent help is required because we might have to do a lot of code changes owing to introduction of register_globals=off (because of security guidelines).

Many Thanks
Rohit

Sorry about the 2nd line in nn1.php
Probably it should have been:
session_register("newvar") = 123;
Tried this and even this doesn't work.
So nn1.php now becomes:

##################################
nn1.php

<?
session_register("newvar") = 123;
header("Location: nn2.php");
?>   

nn2.php

<?
echo $_SESSION["newvar"];
?>
####################################

Please help required.
