While crawling through the tubes to php.net, exploring php configuration 
settings and defaults I realized that my permissions might be wonky.

Let's say that my PHP test app using both $_POST and $_SESSION data is 
in the directory /var/www/testapp

$ sudo chmod 777 /var/www/testapp

FF browser> http://localhost/testapp/

worked with transitions between various pages and moving data between 
then in $_POST and $_SESSION

IE browser> http://<insert-ip-address-here>/testapp/

from the WinX machine brought up the testapp but w/problems with moving 
data around in $_POST and $_SESSION

Maybe chmod 777 is dangerous and 655 might be a better choice (once the 
issues w/'net access to the testapp data are solved)

But I think I am on the right track.
