I am working on this system which uses cookies and it works perfectly on all browsers - including IE untill after version 5.5. IE 6.0 will not accept the cookie unless security is set to minimum. I have bumped into this problem before but never solved it - in stead I simply stopped using cookies. How do I make IE6 accept my cookie without having the user change anything in the browser security setup? "Stop trying to hit me and hit me!"

Maybe ie6 is just very paranoid? Does it just bring up the standard warning about cookies or run but not properly?

IE 6 HAS a paranoya when it comes to cookies, but there is no message what so ever - it just wont accept the cookie.

Are you using the cookies in frames? Maybe in frames that point towards another domain?

IE6, at Medium security, should allow pretty much every cookies, besides the ones coming from different domains than the main site..

As far as I know, the user decides what type of security, which then allows or restricts cookies.

I myself have it on manual mode. Which means, IE6 warns me of every new website that I go to which tries to store a cookie, then I choose to allow or restrict cookies for that site. Best part is IE remembers of those sites and doesnt ask me anymore.

I do automatically allow session cookies as they are usefull.

Lol! Found the hurtle. IE6 couldnt handle a frameset on one server loading a site on another. The sites are:

http://eej.dk/tb/ (loads the second url in a frameset)
http://eej.frac.dk/tb/ (the page that sets and loads the cookie)

Thanks for the help.
