Using Blockfiles to block cookies
« on: August 11, 2001, 10:26:46 AM »
How to...  

Use Proxomitron as a Cookie Manager

Open the main Proxomitron window.  
Click on the button 'Web Page'.  
Enter the word cookie in the 'Find' text box.  
Enable (tick) the filter labled Disable JavaScript (and meta) cookies.  
Click on the button 'OK'. This will close the Web Page Filters window.
Click on the button 'Headers'.  
Enter the word cookie in the 'Find' text box.  
Enable (tick) the filter labled Cookie: Kill a cookie (out) in the 'Out' column. Do the same for Set-cookie: Never accept cookies (In).  
Click on the button 'OK'. This will close the Header Filters window.  
Click on the button 'Config'. This opens the Preference Settings window.  
Select the tab 'Blockfile'.  
In the column 'List Name' click on the file called CookieList.
The button 'Edit' will now become available. Click it. This will open the CookieList text file in your default Text Editor. This list contains sites/domains that you want Proxomitron to allow cookies to and from. Snapshot
Enter the Site/Domain you want to allow cookies from (wild cards are excepted). Examples: www.msn.com will allow cookies from the site www.msn.com, *.msn.com will allow cookies from the entire msn domain, ie: www.msn.com, hotmail.msn.com, etc., etc.  
Save the file and close the Preference Settings window by clicking on the button 'OK'.
Right-click on the Proxomitron icon in the system tray. The context menu will open.  
Select 'Add to Blockfile -> Reload Lists' (this should be done after editing any of the 'Blockfile' lists).
 
That's it! Proxomitron will now block all cookies except for cookies from sites/domains in the AllowCookie textfile.

Note: The above info was taken from Stephen Cox.

Using Blockfiles to block cookies

Thanks cj. A bit late, but today I finally gave up and begun to use Proxo for cookie managing too. My CookiePal has no chance coping with the new Microsoft Cookie Alert in Danish. The window caption of a cookie alert now says : "Sikkerhedsadvarsel om beskyttelse af personlige oplysninger" It is almost a whole mail or book. What happened to the small "Privacy Alert" or in Danish "Sikkerhedsadvarsel"? They don't have to put the whole FAQ in there, do they? Anyway, CookiePal can not capture such a long caption or read the M$ FAQ.

So thanks for the instructions. I never have used this cookie thing in Proxo before, and it works like a charm. Only thing I can use CookiePal for now, is to read the cookies and delete them.

Corrected 2009
hi cj and arne,

i agree with cj settings, but in my filter set i've breaked standard "Disable JavaScript (and meta) cookies":

Code: [Select]
Name = "Disable JavaScript (and meta) cookies"
Active = TRUE
URL = "(^$LST(CookieList))"
Limit = 128
Match = ".cookie(*[(;)=])1|http-equiv="Set-Cookie""
Replace = ".Cracker1"

in these 2 separate filters:

Name = "Disable JavaScript cookies"
Active = TRUE
URL = "(^$LST(CookieList))"
Limit = 128
Match = ".cookie(*[(;)])1"
Replace = ".Cracker1"

Name = "Disable <meta> cookies"
Active = TRUE
URL = "(^$LST(CookieList))"
Bounds = "<meta*>"
Limit = 128
Match = "http-equiv="Set-Cookie""

1. i like manage different things (like javascript or html code) with separate filters;
2. i think this speed up filtering because the second filter in my filter set have the bounds setted. in fact, the sub-string (http) of the second part of standard filter match also all links until it finds
Code: [Select]
(:)  then skip to the rest of page. with bounds <meta*> setted the separate filter matches only 3 or 4 times each page.

i've also renamed the standard header filter "Cookie: Kill a cookie (out)" as:

In = FALSE
Out = TRUE
Key = "Cookie: Kill not allowed cookie (out)"
URL = "(^$LST(CookieList))"
Match = "*"

to specify clearly its work.


regards,
altosax.
