    1. You do the login (check user/pass, handle errors etc)
    + Set the cookie (I recomment session, if you don't specifically need a cookie) after the login is OK
    2. Redirect
    3. Make your check

    im woundering if i can retrieve a cookie from a login
    "From a login" means it's on the same server, right?
