LoginCookieDomain

LoginCookieDomain specifies the domain that EZproxy should use when setting its session cookie during login. The DomainName behavior is the default behavior as it has the widest compatibility across all browsers. When using any of the other options, be sure to test a variety of browsers on a variety of operating systems to insure the session cookie successfully.

If Option SafariCookiePatch is present in config.txt, its behavior overrides the LoginCookieDomain behavior for users who are accessing with the Safari browser.

Qualifiers
