How to locate cookie ?

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hi friends,
I'm using cookie mechanism for state management in my project. When I write a cookie and then read it, it works properly. But the Problem is that i'm not able to find the cookie in my file system. Can any body tell me how to find the cookie in windows xp. I'm using this path(C:\Documents and Settings\Atinesh\Cookies) and here's my code

HttpCookie mycookie = new HttpCookie("YMCA");
mycookie["Uname"] = "atibaba";
mycookie["Password"] = "enrique123";
mycookie.Expires = DateTime.Now.AddDays(10);

if (Request.Cookies["YMCA"] != null)
            lbluname.Text = Request.Cookies["YMCA"]["Uname"];
            lblpass.Text = Request.Cookies["YMCA"]["Password"];

Adding a cookie to a response.redirect vs. httpWebRequest


Hello, I will try to be as clear as I can be.  I'm sure this question has been asked but I can't find a suitable answer for this particular situation.

I need to be able to redirect the browser to a new 3rd party page while at the same time supplying a cookie required for some form of authentication on the 3rd party site.

I have managed to get this to work in the following manner:


'SessionID is predetermined by another HttpWebRequest/Response  

Dim sessionCookie As New Cookie("ezproxy", sessionID.Substring(1), "/", ".someother.site")

Dim CookieJar As New CookieContainer


rRequest = HttpWebRequest.Create("where I want to go")

rRequest.CookieContainer = CookieJar

rRequest.Method = "GET"


'Make the request and get the response.

rResponse = rRequest.GetResponse()


'Save cookie(s)

If (rResponse.Cookies.Count <> 0) Then

Why is ASP.NET appending "\" to the beginning and end of a cookie value?


Here's what I'm seeing in FireFox when viewing a Facebook generated cookie coming from facebook:

But when I go and get this cookie and shove it into an HttpCookie object, now it's appending this stupid "\" to the beginning and end causing me all sorts of issues..one with the first key/value pair and then the uid ends up containing a "\" after the uid value (WHY would it be appending this crap?!?!?):

my code:

string facebookCookieName = "fbs_" + ConfigUtil.GetAppConfigSetting("PayPalClientID");

            // Check for an existing session
            HttpCookie facebookAuthCookie = HttpContext.Current.Request.Cookies[facebookCookieName];

string userID = facebookAuthCookie["uid"];
            string accessToken = facebookAuthCookie["\"access_token"];

Best way to connect a Cookie to a session?

I usually like to do it the hard way, just to get a feel of what you can do! In ASP.net there is probably a really simple way Forms authentication etc. but this is what I have. I know from previous experience that you should never save a Cookie that contains a password, so how to connect a session to a cookie when the user accesses the website, with saved cookies information. I though about using a Guid, in the cookie, and then check the database to see if that guid is available, but this could be a sort of password like effect. Here is my code. Private Sub Login1_LoggingIn(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.LoginCancelEventArgs) Handles Login1.LoggingIn Dim mDbase As New SQL("<Server>", "<Database>", "", "", True) mDbase.Open() Dim mUserItem As UserItem = mDbase.Record.Item("SELECT TOP 1 Username, First, Surname, AccessLevel, LastVisited FROM TBLUsers WHERE Username='" & Me.Login1.UserName & "' AND Password='" & Me.Login1.Password & "'", GetType(UserItem)) If mUserItem IsNot Nothing Then If Me.Login1.RememberMeSet = True Then 'Dim mGuid As Guid = System.Guid.NewGuid 'mGuid.ToString() 'Create cookie data End If If Session("User") Is Nothin

Problem reading from cookie

I'm trying to build a smaller shop and I have run into some problems with cookies.

LoginView, DropDownList, Cookie, AutoPostBack Conundrum

OK, I am at a complete loss. Users for my site can have many stores to configure under their one user account. When they login I have the app generate a cookie for each store and hold all the stores basic information. For each cookie I then generate a list item in a drop down list. I can get the list to generate just fine and all of the pages that reference the list get the information fine. When I change the list to a different item however, and the page posts back my first LoginView is set to LoggedInTemplate while my navigation loginview (in site.maser like the first one) and my content loginview (in the actual page) come back in AnonymousTemplate, even though the user is authenticated. I can either do a response.redirect or physically refresh the page and all loginviews are in LoggedInTemplate again. The problem is though that I lost all of the postback data so I can essentially only view information on the first item in the dropdownlist. Now, I am new to asp.net authentication, and while I feel that I am starting to get the hang of it, there is a very good chance that I am doing something wrong. I have all the authentication working correctly and except for this postback issue. I can login, navigate through pages that aren't accessible without being authenticated and I can logout without issue. If anyone has any suggestions it would be gr

SQL Server Management Studio cannot locate my database

I had to uninstall SQL Server 08 when I left my last project, I have reinstalled the management studio but it no longer recognizes the databases that are on my local machine.  How can I reconcile the connection to the preexisting databases?  When I choose connect, nothing comes up in the options and when i type in the database name it errors out.  I thought it was just that the old files were corrupt but I installed a brand new database and while i can verify that it exists on my machine, I cannot connect through Management Studio.
