Passing cookies from client to webrequest host

Hi all,

I have to screen scrape a site to put into our templates. (We have the site
owners permission).

The site has a login screen, and I can successfully post credentials using
HttpWebRequest. This is not a problem.

The site then send a cookie with a sessionid. What I want to do is instead
of saving it locally on the server, is to pass the cookie onto the client,
then when another call is requested to the app host, I read the cookie from
my client and send to the host.

Any ideas as to how I can achieve this?

I am using the CookieContainer , but having never used it before, I don't
know what I am doing with it. I can get the session ID string out of the
cookie. I will assume that I do something like the old ASP, response.cookie s
to send the cookie to the client. Reading the cookie should also be pretty
straightforward , something like request.cookies but then putting that cookie
back into the request to the host, how do I do that?

Thanks.

Best regards,
Dave Colliver.

I know how to create a cookie using the HttpCookie. I know about setting its domain so it can be shared. So I have created a cookie on web site A and set it to expire in 10 minutes. Now I am on web site B, in VS.NET C# and I want to access the cookie created on web site A.

I am writing a simple HTTP Client in .NET. I make an HTTP Request and examine the response. I get an empty CookieCollection when I do HttpWebResponse.Cookies. However HttpWebResponse.Headers returns the correct list of cookies (represented as a comma-separated string) in the response. Can someone please explain the discrepancy? Thanks,

OK I logon to a web site and I manage to get an SMSESSION cookie that I then store in a variable called _session (a class scoping variable). I do this by calling a logon URL and setting a cookie to SMCHALLANGE=YES to allow me to obtain a session. I then iterate the cookie collection to extract the SMSESSION value. All is good (so far). This...
