Error:necessary data rewind wasn't possible

Hi All,

I have a question regarding the https authentication

input is : Username and Password
Output is : response cookie

I am getting following failure reason "necessary data rewind wasn't possible" when tried to do the PostFromStringWithTimeout.

Does roku support cookies?

Re: Error:necessary data rewind wasn't possible

We do not have direct support for cookies. However, we do support parsing and adding the http headers yourself. So if you are industrious, you could use roUrlTransfer to add/process the Set-Cookie and Cookie headers in your app.
