First, I tested it with DeleGate and URL as:
It failed in the page saying that Cookie must be enabled.
So I retried it as this (referring the DeleGate's host with FQDN):
Then I saw (maybe) a successful page.
With parameters for debugging, FCL=-tee-n-h FSV=-tee-n-h, you can see how
a (Set-)Cookie is rewritten from its original form in a response message
from a server to the one forwarded to client after it is rewritten by
DeleGate. In this case, the original Cookie is like this:
Set-Cookie: name=value; path=/; domain=.host.dom
And it is rewritten by DeleGate like this:
Set-Cookie: name=value; path=/-_-http://host.dom/; domain=myhost
The problem is that the domain "myhost" does not include "." character
which is necessary to be acceptable by a browser (Firefox) as a legal
Cookie. And to be compliant with RFC2109, it must start with "." ...
