Will cookies be properly processed if I do not specify
Copy code
install(HttpCookies) {
            storage = AcceptAllCookiesStorage()
on client init? Specifying this causes iOS MPP to crash, but I need cookies! ;/ P.S. Also I cannot extract it from headers directly 'cause it looks like ktor strips the "Set-Cookie" header before 😕

Hi @Andy Victors, ktor shouldn't strip
header. Can you provide the request sample or log?
btw: CookieStorage is fixed in master and can be workarounded by implementing
interface in place.
I've just rechecked with Postman and Postman also does not show cookie header, but after response I see the cookie I need in Postman's cookie list. So I'm going to refresh my understanding of cookie passing & possibly retest.
May be you can still give me hints on this issue. I'm doing simple request using ktor (iOS, ktor follows redirects)
Copy code
GET <https://mydomain.com/vpn/lx/index.html>
Since the URL is being the firewall, I get the login-page back, after one redirect (302). Here is the log from doing the same from browser :

As you can see, the first response (302/redirect) returned cookie NSC_TASS, which then was used to follow redirect. This all works as expected. Now when doing the same over Ktor with automatic redirect, I get only the last 200 response, which does not contain any cookie header. But that means the cookie is lost for me - that's my problem. Assumingly I have to configure the cookie storage, but that's broken now for iOS, right?
The question is also, are cookies auto-processed and stored by default, without using
storage = AcceptAllCookiesStorage()
