CGI App: Add cookie to another Domain

I want to add a cookie to appear at another domain.

Here is my code so far, not sure why it doesn't work, but the cookies don't appear at the new domain.

// Add cookie to current domain. THIS WORKS FINE!
with Response.Cookies.Add do begin
  Name := 'Product';
  Value := '1'
  Expires := Now + 1;
  Path := '/';
end;

// THE FOLLOWING CODE DOESN'T WORK: WHY?????
// Add the same cookie to another domain.
with Response.Cookies.Add do begin
  Name := 'Product';
  Value := '1'
  Expires := Now + 1;
  Path := '/path/';
  Domain := 'www.anotherdomain.com';
end;

Any help would be great. Thanks

I don't think that you can read or set cookies of another domain, if that is possible then you can read and set www.yahoo.com, hotmail cookies, then there will not be security in cookies.

I think Domain property mean the domain that you are registering, for example if you have two domain names for your web server such as domain1.com and domain2.com, you can set the cookies only for users who use domain1.com to access your computer or vice versa.

That was my guess too - once thinking about it a bit more!
Thanks for your help.

Do you know if should I allocated the points to you or delete my questions altogether?

cjclayton,

You are putting Motaz in a awkward position with this last question, so I'll comment on it if you don't mind...
You should assign him the points, because he gave you the answer, regardless of the fact it was negative.

Also, if I may suggest, it would be wise of you to follow up on your opened questions - I looked at your question history and you have quite a bit of them.
Not following up on your questions after receiving several possible answers is a good way to have experts ignoring you on your next question. Please understand - taking time for commenting or even answering ones question, and then not receiving any response is very iritating.
Please try to avoid this pattern of behaviour, thanks.
