Update: the cookie file is '.pm-cookie' NOT '.pm-cookies', thanks to Asim for making me test my own instructions.

I only seemed to be able to log in as Anonymous Monk through our local firewall/proxy. It turns out that the '.pm-cookie' file which is used to store login information wasn't being created.

All you need to do is find the directory where your '.perlmonks' directory lives (%HOME%?) and create an empty '.pm-cookie' file. Then run 'getchat.pl' (comes with PerlMonks module) as 'getchat.pl -l <username>', this will log you in properly and sort out the cookies.

Update: the directories should be something like this:

  • %HOME%/
    • .perlmonks/
    • .pm-cookie
    • (other stuff...)

/msg me if you need any more information...
