in thread Loging a user out with CGI and Cookies?

Thanks merlyn - shortly after posting this, I broke out the latest "Web Techbniques" and re-read your article a couple times. Your right - as I was testing new ideas, I noticed that sometimes my browser did in fact ignore the cookie expiry all together. Therefore, I am going to need to implement some type of server side session info, has had been previously suggested.

Thanks for all the help!

    Merlyn was right again,
    but should be interesting to know which one browser has problems..... Microsoft Internet Exploder? Netsuck?
    I am using MSIE 5.0 (PC) and I founded some diferencies between PC and Mac version - right with cookie and redirect operations.

      I had some problems with an older version of MSIE, but I don't remember which version. However, I found out that on IE for Mac (the latest version, 4 something I think) the browser didn't even store my cookie in the first play, which was very disconcerting because that means that the login didn't work in that browser. Very odd problem, although that was the only case in which I have had that problem.
