If I add the following code to my web config in the System.Web section. I get a 403 error when trying to connect. Any thoughts?

<sessionState mode="InProc"
   cookieless="true"
   timeout="120"/>


If I remove mode and cookieless flag the site comes up.

What I have tried:

taking it out, searching the web, etc...

If in doubt, look at the error message. A quick google tells you what you need to know:
403 error - Google Search[^]
Error 403 Means "Forbidden" - you don't have permission to access some resource on that page, or the page itself.
At a guess, it's in a folder that requires a user to log in with a specific role, but since we don't have any access to your codebase we can't tell.
Compare that page with a working page (probably in a different folder) and compare the web.config files to see if there is any security info in them.
