JavaScript cookies is not passing from one page to the next on Internet Explorer 8.  I am using
setCookie() and getCookie() commands to pass cookies.  The cookies are however working on
local browser page.  Also, they are passing fine using Safari browser.

Thanks,

Dan

install fiddler to see what is passed from page to page...

(to debug localhost, use ip instead)

We haven't got our application out there yet.  Is there way way to test the cookies page passing from
page to page using a local directory structure?

Thanks,

Dan

1. setCookie and getCookie from where. 99% of all cookie scripts are calling their code setCookie and getCookie
2. IE does not normally like to set cookies on pages loaded from file system since there is no recognisable domain.

Does it work on a server?

I don't know yet.  I haven't put it out on the server yet.  Is there a temporary solution? Do you need a web server?

Thanks,

Dan

Normally for IE you need a server for cookies.
