Connection identification

How does EE recognize me as hobbit123, after login? It does not pass username and password to next pages/scripts. How can I do the same, preferably with CGI Expert?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

EE uses 2 different method, if you have cookie enable,
this is automatic as the cookie is sent to EE each time you connect to their web site.
The other way would be to have a CGI script that would check the username/password against a database and then modify each link in the html pages by inserting a userid that would come from your database.
