Can you show how you tried it?
It's not really clear if you have troubles with the CURL cookie options (fetching and writing on your server),
or that you have troubles putting the cookie from your server to the client and assuming that they can login on 'somesite' (write cookie from your server with a different domain), which is not possible.

Please post the exact URL you want to retrieve cookies from, along with any code you have tried already.  I can show you demonstration scripts that use the CURL cookie jar, but it would be more practical to have a site to test with.  Thanks.

Check your Cookie path use \\ instead of \

Here's an example I use change the site to your site and the cookie path to your path.


Selvol


<?php
 $ch = curl_init();
   curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, FALSE);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, TRUE);
     curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIESESSION, TRUE);
      curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 0);
     curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, "C:\\Sol\\www\\phpr0xi_v0.6_2010\\exe2\\cookies.txt");
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR, "C:\\Sol\\www\\phpr0xi_v0.6_2010\\exe2\\cookies.txt");
  curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, 'http://SITE/search_post.html?Victim=smith&action=7CrmeBcr5tY%3D');
 $result1 = curl_exec($ch);
  if(preg_match('/<tr class="searchresultheading" bgcolor="#7A8EAD">(.*)<!-- Footer Nav -->/s', $result1, $avon))
  {
$avon =  str_replace("affirmation", "https://SITE/affirmation",  $avon[1]);
      echo $avon;
      }
      else
      {
    echo "No Results Found"; }
 flush();
 curl_close($ch); ?>

use \\ instead of \

I think you can also use the predefined and OS-aware PHP constant, DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR
