Captcha Validation Always Fails

I am using only server validations, and for my captcha that was generated when I ran my from through CSS Form Builder is using the following kind of server validation:

Any Form Post
Like Entry
Server Variable: strtolower(((isset($_POST["securityCaptcha"]))?$_POST["securityCaptcha"]:""))
Same as: strtolower($_SESSION['captcha_Security_Code_1'])
checked not case sensitive

Does not seem to work. What's wrong here?

Attached is my code.

Thats not the correct captcha session to use.

in the image tag that creates the captcha image:
[php]<img src="../webassist/captcha/wavt_captchasecurityimages.php?field=securityCaptcha&width=265&transparent=false&noiseorder=0&font=fonts/MOM_T___.TTF" alt="Security Code" class="Captcha">[php]

there is a variable named "field" that is passed:

the captcha session name will use the following naming convention:
captcha_<value of field variable>

so in this case, the captcha session that is created is:

The same as section should be set as:
Same as: strtolower($_SESSION['captcha_securityCaptcha'])
