Why don't you follow the advice in your sig and do the experiment? Let us know what happens and be sure to include the browser version.

My first guess is that the browser on the other computer does not recognize the cookie file format for some reason. Since you didn't include any information on the browsers you are using, thats all I can say. The standards that have to do with cookies don't say anything about how they are to be stored.

From having a quick look in the Cookies directory, it looks like there is a text document to store the cookie information, but there is also an index.dat file.
I'm guessing that cookie data will only be looked for if it exists in the index file. Therefore - No, picking up a cookie file from one machine and moving to another will not do anything.

Yes .. I think you are right, that file I have not copied
Soon I will try also by copying index.dat also. But I have to wait for some comp to be free.
Thanks a lot
