I am doing an asp page to test if the visitor has the cookies property enabled in his/her browser.
This page drops a cookie with a 3 minute expiration period, than redirects to it self and then tries to retrieve the cookie. If it is successful than the cookies are activated, otherwise they're not. In either case a message is displayed.
The problem is that this works with Netscape but not with IE 3 or IE4. With either one of these browsers the message is not displayed. It seems that the browser is caching the page and it does not display the message. But the curious detail is that when I reenter the URL where the last redirection is made manually it works (at least in IE4).
What is the problem ?
