no cookies at 3rd party

Hi all,

The problem I've encountered is about the same as the one posted
previously by Miles Sampson.
I'm having a domain hosted at one server and all database
stuff on an other. Both have different IP numbers. Now there's
an index file with a framesetting on the first server that loads a page from the second
server. Any cookies set at the second server will be treated by
IE6 as thirdparty cookies because the parent domain is different from
the domain the cookies are set from.

Right? Right.

All third partycookies are blocked in most security settings so people
using IE 6 cannot log in at server number 2.
So when I was informed of this problem I set up all p3p stuff and a
guideline for my IE 6 users to workaround this problem. I tell them
to check "Always allow this site to use cookies" and press the OK

When all is set & done IE6 still won't allow cookies from my second server.

I'm getting a bit annoyed by now because this site needs this cookie. If
there's a clever workaround please let me know.
