Hello,

I know this is a challenging one, so the points are high.

I am trying to access a site which requires a session cookie in order to display a page.  I am using the Internet Transfer control's "Execute" method to retrieve the page via GET.  I have been told that there is a way to send cookie information using the headers.

1)  What is a clever way to find out EXACTLY what cookie the web site is sending my browser

2)  How do I mimic this cookie using the Internet Transfer control?

Thanks.
