I had to check now...
Yes, I.E. advanced settings has cookies set to automatic handleing, and always allow. Nothing is marked in the Blocked fields, not working.
I get the login page, I get to:
You have been logged in. A "cookie" has been saved to your computer which should allow you to access this system without logging in in the future. Your browser must accept cookies to use this system.
Click here to go to the main page.
I hit any link and it just boots me back to the login fields. It's not my username, as others have used it to test, I've used it as well in other netscape and in I.E. on different pc's.
I even ftp'ed into the directory just to do a refresh on all the files and verified the settings were chomded correct. I've never had this, never seen it, been using newspro a few years (3?).
