Hi Can somebody point me right here? I'm trying to read some cookies set an an ASP (not .NET) server on a CF server on the same domain. When I read the cookies in CF I'm getting gibberish back. The ASP is of course reading them back fine. Naturally I'm suspecting character encoding Some playing about with pagenecoding certainly changes the gibberish I'm seeing, but it's still gibberish. <cfprocessingdirective pageencoding="iso-8859-1"> or UTF-8. whatever ASP (not .NET) apparently URL encodes it's cookies. No problem, I URLDecode them, it's still gibberish. This is all part of a seemless login process, which will work fine if I'm using ASP. It seems from my Google research that few people have encountered problems, maybe nobody else is doing this stuff?!? Any ideas?
