Reading Foriegn Cookies

by ppg (Initiate)
on Dec 28, 2001 at 16:16 UTC ( #134859=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

ppg has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hope everyone had a nice break,
I need to integrate my Perl web site with an IIS site.
The IIS site handles the security and authentication creating a client side cookie that I need to read in Perl.
The cookies encrypted with Blowfish and decrypting is easy I just don't know how to read from the browsers machine.
I have no idea how to start with this.
please help.

      looking at them now.
        Think I've got,
        After RTFM, I found you only get access to cookies from your domain and currently the IIS and Apache systems are sitting on different domains.

    I used the CGI module, didn't have any luck with the other modules. Most of my troubles were caused in the setting of the cookie, so the reading of it would probably have worked for me with the other modules.
    use CGI qw(:standard); $gotcookie = cookie('login');
    $gotcookie will contain the contents of the login attribute from the cookie.
