There SHOULD be no way to read cookies directly. That's a security
mechanism. Cookies which have a domain as origin that match the current
request/site are sent to the site by the browser automatically. They are
then usually available via server variables.
That way they should be available to you. What you can NOT do is access
cookies of a different domain. (I am not 100% sure about subdomains)
If both systems are on different machines (from the browsers point of
view) they can't read each others cookies.
