Ok thanks for your help and suggestions Sid, you have certainly cleared up a few things for me. I will try playing with the cookie and see what happens.. I will let you know when I get it working and how.
I have set up JForum to use SSO and I have written a class which implements SSO and updated SystemGlobals.properties accordingly, as described in the docs.
I login to my site and then click on "Forum" which opens JForum in a new window. My SSO class is being called fine (as I can see from the server logs), but I am getting the error :
I can see it is falling over on the line that retrieves the cookie :
My question is, would anyone know why getCookie(...) is unable to find the session cookie, even though it is there? And how am I able to fix it (more importantly!)
The last suggestion of yours should work. But you best give it a try and see yourself ;) I'm not totally sure which part of the domain will be saved as domain attribute within the cookie.
Ah - when I remember right, there was some implementations of cookie that allow setting the domain name too. Maybe you could use the old network structure and just set the cookie not for the current domain but for the different domain. Not sure if that also may work ... just a shot in the dark [originally posted on jforum.net by Sid]
