Set-Cookie2

Obsolete
This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.

The obsolete Set-Cookie2 HTTP response header used to send cookies from the server to the user agent, but has been deprecated by the specification. Use Set-Cookie instead.

Syntax

Set-Cookie2: <cookie-name>=<cookie-value> 
Set-Cookie2: <cookie-name>=<cookie-value>; Comment=<value>
Set-Cookie2: <cookie-name>=<cookie-value>; CommentURL=<http-url>
Set-Cookie2: <cookie-name>=<cookie-value>; Discard
Set-Cookie2: <cookie-name>=<cookie-value>; Domain=<domain-value>
Set-Cookie2: <cookie-name>=<cookie-value>; Max-Age=<non-zero-digit>

Set-Cookie2: <cookie-name>=<cookie-value>; Port=<port-number>
Set-Cookie2: <cookie-name>=<cookie-value>; Secure
Set-Cookie2: <cookie-name>=<cookie-value>; Version=<version-number>

// Multiple directives are also possible, for example:
Set-Cookie2: <cookie-name>=<cookie-value>; Domain=<domain-value>; Secure
