This might seem stupid to the cookie cognescenti, will a firewall set at max prevent a cookie being received eg the mudcat cookie how can the cookie be identified

Doesn't seem like a stupid question to me, ss. I am amazed you can formulate the question. I have no idea what you're talking about. However, there are a gang of people here who will answer your question within the hour I'd bet.

yes - fiewalls can prevent cookies. How you allow the mudcat cookie through depends on your firewall, and/or your browser.

Firewalls can be a problem for cookies, but almost all firewalls have a way to accept cookies that a user marks as acceptable (if you're on a network, it's the network administrator who makes that decision, so that may prevent you from keeping your Mudcat cookie on a computer at work).

Here's an e-mail I received with a related problem that I haven't been able to answer:
    I am having trouble trying to login as a member. It tells me that you must be a member to use certain features, however, I am a member. Apparently, I even have one message. When I click on it, I am told that you have to be a member. I click on personal page, and it is empty. I log out and then log in, but nothing changes. I have gone to Internet Explorer and then to Tools - cleared history and deleted files, but again, nothing changed. Is there any hope for me? Please help.
The member has done all the things I have recommended in the FAQ, including clearing cache and history - but the problem still exists. Can anybody suggest other things to try? Is there anything I can add to the FAQ section on cookies?

I had something like that happen to me Joe, way back. I think I logged out completely, cleared Mudcat from my Favorites or Bookmarks, cleared out my cookies and next Googled Mudcat. I then reenterd and logged on. That seemed to fix it at the time. Hasn't happened since.

Almost everything is controlled ny some setting on your computer...the problem is, there 'can' be several settings to adjust. I have cookie controls in 3 different places...browser, firewall, and 'web filter'.

You can tell your browser to accept cookies, but your firewall thinks otherwise....and even after telling all relevant programs that you LIKE the Mudcat cookie, you may have to reLOAD the page to get the cookie recognized. (I had this problem, when I hit 'refresh' or clicked on "forum home" IN Mudcat, my browser was loading a cached copy of the page, and not looking at my cookie....doing a reLOAD..(or whatever IE calls it..I use Opera & Firefox) tells the browser to start over and go to the site and get new posts, as well as checking for a cookie and permission to use that cookie.

In Ireland, we refer to "Cookies" as "Biscuits". Is'nt it time that Mudcat changed it's cookies to biscuits and maybe the crumbs wouldn't clog up the system.

I just found my cookie file on this very new computer & deleted the strange things, and found I have multiple Mudcat & Annex/folkinfo cookies. I kept them all, even tho it appears I have 2 membeships for folkinfo (I couldn't spell my mudcat name, silly me, I'll have to ask Jon to fix it)

I have 2 for buddy (CFID & CDTOKEN), 3 for Mucat (COOKIE ID, CFID, CFTOKEN) & 2 for mudcat supersearch (CFTOKLEN & CFID)

Is this normal?

I also checked the option that said 'Don't allow sites that set removed cookies to set future cookies' - I like that idea, even tho it means the next time I have a look at the local broadsheet paper could be interesting!

A cookie is usually used for just one purpose - many sites need multiple cookies for different things... deleting any one may disable some facilities.

I left alone my Mucat cookies & my Annex/folkinfo cookies & will regularly check what appears in the cookie jar

Just curious- every time I come back to Mudcat, I get the same Cookie delete message from Spyware Doctor.
Something like default@atdmt[1]txt. Does anyone know what it is? Day in, day out, the same cookie.
