      Description

      Say you got a domain running on your machine and you got a SSH to a server
      running glassfish as well. You would have :

      http://localhost:4848/
      --> local admin

      http://localhost:48/
      --> SSH'ed access to the remote admin

      The problem is that accessing one admin log out the other (and vice versa).
      Workaound is to reauthenticate on each new request, this is working but very
      painfull.

      I am anticipating this has to do with the domain cookie ...

      Fixing this would allow us to have a production remote monitoring and
      development testing at the same time that is quite usual for today's applications.

        It is having the same begaviour with IE7 latest beta as well on 2 tab.
        I think other IE version should behave the same (I am stuck to IE latest beta at
        this time and can not test on another IE version).

        Tnx for the work around (localhost vs 127.0.0.1) it worked.

        I believe this is a browser issue. If you can try this using 2 IE browser, you
        will see that both domain can be accessed without logging ecah other out.
        The problem exists in Netscape 7.1 on, but not 7.0
        Mozilla 1.4/1.5 will have the same problem.

        When you login to admin gui, the browser stores these cookies : JSESSIONID and
        JSESSIONIDSSO.
        In Netscape 7.1, the site for the cookie is stored as just the
        hostname, but not the port number. In Netscape 7.0.2 the site name contains port
        number as well. Hence this problem is seen in Netscape 7.1 onward but not on 7.0.2.

        Cookies are not identified by port number by Mozilla/Netscape intentionally -
        Following bugs have been filed on Mozilla asking for a change to this behaviour.

        http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=227475
        However, these bugs are not being fixed.

        The following comments describe the decision of not storing port number :

        Also look at http://sillydog.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6746

        To work around this problem, try accessing by
        http://localhost:4848
        and
        http://<IP-address>:48

        Will continue to see how admin gui can fix this, marked as enhancement for now.
