LoginCookieName

LoginCookieName specifies an alternate name for the EZproxy session cookie. The default name for the EZproxy session cookie is ezproxy.

The main application for this directive occurs in environments where multiple EZproxy servers operate in the same domain, but provide access to different content. In such environments, the session cookie set by one EZproxy server could be overwritten when accessing a second EZproxy server, preventing the ability to use both servers concurrently.
