Hi, Im trying to get my servlet to access and download a page. The page requires a cookie to access it tho. Can a servlet use a cookie to access other webpages? Any info is appreciated.

Yes, if you know cookie name and value then just set them when you open URL connection.

Here is an example of setting a JSEESIONID which is just
a cookie as far as HTTP is concerned.
