I'm trying to use this merchant account:
http://www.symmetrydirect.com/wconnect/ ... r~LBGORDON, but everytime I try to move to the other page it gives a time out error. They told me that I will have to go to the main page for there server to place a session cookie befre I can continue with the page.

Ques: Is there a way to get a cookie from a site without actually going to the site for it.

yes there is a way
but it would involve you making the cookie file and inserting the correct data into it and then placing the file into your cookies folder
but.. why don't you just go to their main page

A company gave us the home page, however we found it dificult to promote (they used frames). We needed a merchant accoutn that they provided and we would like to link their backbone using this tag:https://www.symmetrydirect.com/wconnect/wc.dll?jws~newenr~LBGORDON

I really appreciate your help but at this time we would prefer a free alternative in getting the cookie, even if we have to do alot more work.

Any other suggestions would be welcomed.

oh i see what you're saying... but unfortunetly you cannot do what you ask.
It's a security issue with windows. You cannot print a cookie meant for a domain other then your own. Windows will reject it if you try.

Yeah there is no way you can make the cookie yourself as it is considered a security risk and browswers will not let you make cookies for other domains. The only way you will get around it is to contact that host/company and see if they would set up something custom for you without frames. Either that or find another company to go with.

BUMMER :( , I have invested quite a bit in my personal website and would not like to lose it, :idea: Is there a way to link the page that I want to go to stopping by the home page on the way. In other words when persons click on my link they would pass the homepage of the other site to get the cookie they need to continue.

Does it sound possible :?: or am I reaching :?: :grab:

Why not just embed an iframe on your page that references the page that provides the valid cookie? Like so:

Code: [ Select ]
<iframe src="http://www.ecommercesite.com/cookiepage.htm" style="display:none;"></iframe>


You visitors should then already have the required cookie when they click the link to jump to the page you mentioned.
