    Hi

    Just to confirm, if I create a cookie via one of my web sites, I can't call
    and query that cookie from a different site can I?

    I want to keep checking the state between a http site and a https site that
    both need to work together and at the moment I have to post the relevant
    session id between the sites for my background DB to keep track, but I just
    had a thought - can I use a generic cookie between the sites?

    I would have thought that this wasn't possible between sites with 2
    different URLs, but I just wanted to check.

    Thank you

  2. Yes, you are correct. Otherwise, I'd make a page that stole people's Paypal
    password. Okay, not really, but...
