I bought a Nintendo DS Browser (Opera 8.5) recently, and it's really slick little device. However, it has one glaring issue: it won't store passwords or cookies across boots so you have to manually log in to every web site each time you turn it on. So, this makes me wonder if there's any kind of web proxy I could install on my FreeBSD server that would cache and re-send cookies.
Basically, the idea is that the proxy would have it's own local cookie storage and would re-send any for a domain that the browser itself isn't sending. For example, if "sess_id=12345" is set for .example.com, and the browser requests GET /index.html HTTP/1.1 Host: www.example.com Cookie: foo=bar then the proxy would change that to: GET /index.html HTTP/1.1 Host: www.example.com Cookie: foo=bar; sess_id=12345 As a given, it'd also have to support some kind of authentication so that a given user only gets their own cookies. Does such a thing exist? Please help me. I'm getting hand cramps from pecking out the same logins every time I turn the thing on. -- Kirk Strauser
