Name

DomainTail — honor only the toplevel domain in IP qualification

SYNOPSIS

Yes | No

DESCRIPTION

The directive simply specifies that only the toplevel domain should be used in IP qualification for session IDs. If, for example, an IP was ri01-053.dialin.iskon.hr, only iskon.hr would be used.

Interchange also supports taking various ccTLDs into account; see CountrySubdomains.

DIRECTIVE TYPE AND DEFAULT VALUE

Global directive

EXAMPLES

Example: Disabling DomainTail

DomainTail No

NOTES

This directive is a compromise on security, but it allows browsers that do not accept cookies to use multiple proxy servers in the same domain. Note that this directive is enabled by default.

If you are encrypting credit cards with PGP/GPG or using payment services, then look at the WideOpen directive, which enables even more browser compatibility, again at the cost of some security.
