Subject Re: RE: Problem in Transferring session between http and https on Net scape
Date Wed, 23 May 2001 06:08:43 GMT
Are you running HTTP and HTTPS of their standard ports?

Netscape records the port number as part of the domain of the cookie. 
IE does not. This means that Netscape will not return a cookie unless 
the ports match or there is no port in the url. 

so I can pass a cookie between:

 http://www.foo.com and https://www.foo.com 

but not between:

 http://www.foo.com:8080 and http://www.foo.com:8081
