ASP.NET 3.5 and above only

Obout.Ajax.UI Controls - Captcha - WebGarden/WebFarm

The CaptchaImage control stores its image and secret code in the session state. By default the session states are stored in the worker process of the application pool.


     <sessionState mode="InProc" />

In this case and if your application is configured to run in any of the environments, listed below, there will be a problem accessing the image and secret code:
  • Web Garden - The application runs on a single server and multiple worker processes are used for an application pool.
  • Web Farm - The application runs on more than one web server.
As a result you will see the following image instead of the Captcha image:

So you should configure your server environment to use any from the out of process Session States: StateServer, SQLServer or Custom(here you must take care yourself that the session state data were available).
See for details this page.
