Send browser-identifying cookie to client

WEBCOOKID is a parameter on JANUS DEFINE, which defines and sets characteristics of a Janus port.

This parameter indicates that an identifying "cookie" should be sent to a browser to distinguish multiple browsers coming through the same proxy server or running on the same machine. Many web features including logon caching and legacy support limit the number of connections available to a single user. The distinction between users is made based on userid and IP address. If many users are expected to use the same userid and to come from the same IP address (probably because they are using the same proxy server) WEBCOOKID can be used to distinguish these users via the web "cookies" feature.

Note that some browsers do not support cookies (though most do) and end-users can turn off support of the cookies feature. An end-user using a browser that does not support cookies or has their support turned off will have difficulty using the legacy support feature and logon caching on a WEBCOOKID port.

Valid only for WEBSERV ports.
