frames and cookies

I have a page, which writes a cookie, creating two frames. I have verified
via Fireplug that the cookie is being written. In one of the frames, an
attempt then is made to read the cookie. Therein, I have code to see if the
cookie is set -- and it keeps telling me it is not set (despite my being
able to see it there, and it;s contents, and it is correct). Can someone
please tell me why, in this code, my frame connot read this cookie? Thanks.

//here is the page that creates the cookie, and establishes the frames
-------------------------------
<?php
$user= $_POST['user'];
$server= $_POST['server'];
$port= $_POST['port'];
$channel= $_POST['channel'];
$email= $_POST['email'];
$fullname= $_POST['fullname'];
$sk= $_POST['sk'];
$voice= $_POST['voice'];
$usevoice= $_POST['usevoice'];
$password= $_POST['password'];
$timer = md5(time());
$info = $user . "+" . $server . "+" . $port. "+" . $channel. "+"
..$email. "+" .$fullname. "+" .$sk. "+" .$voice. "+" .$usevoice. "+"
..$password;
SetCookie("vios", $info, time() + 86400 * 10); //Set Cookie for 10

Hi R. Vince,

Cookies are set PER DOMAIN and possible even with a PATH in that domain.
That means that a cookie set at:
http://www.example.com cannot be retrieved by:
http://www.yetanotherdomain.com

By not retrieving I mean:
1) Is NEVER send to the server
2) Cannot be queried by Javascript.

So in effect a cookie from another domain is effectively not there.
This has been like this since... Netscape2 if memory serves me well.

Regards,
Erwin Moller
