What does the Use Session or Permanent Cookies option mean?

The Use Session or Permanent Cookies drop-down list is available in the ESP Options section of the Virtual Service modify screen. To access this screen, in the LoadMaster Web User Interface (WUI), go to Virtual Services > View/Modify Services and click Modify on the relevant Virtual Service.

Three options are available to select for this field:

  • Session Cookies Only: This is the default and most secure option
  • Permanent Cookies only on Private Computers: Sends session cookies on public computers
  • Permanent Cookies Always: Sends permanent cookies in all situations

Specify if the LoadMaster should send session or permanent cookies to the users’ browser when logging in.

Note: Permanent cookies should only be used when using single sign on with services that have sessions spanning multiple applications, such as SharePoint.
