ok, the ASP programmer i work with is developing a site for a client that does some fancy searches and what-have-yous behind a user/pass. The client has cookies and sessions blocked on their browser, so they can't log in or test out their site. Is there way to get around this so they can use their site with their security settings or should we tell them to accept cookies and deal with it?

Code your page to pass the session around to each url. Instead of a cookie containing the data you would have the variables in the URL.

Example: url.asp?sessionid=878239901&etc....

Or you could store it in a local cookie file instead of a remote cookie file. but this would be difficult I think.

I don't know anything about ASP but it is fairly easy to accomplish with PHP. I assume that ASP would probably be just as easy.
