Coment Style notification returns error 403


I have managed to login to the messenger and get notification using the comet-style notification in Java.

But when I am receiving notification and then trying to listen for the new notifications, i sometimes get error 403. (bad IM cookie or URI credentials), when i am repeating the EXACT same url in the second attempt to listen for notificatiosn, it works...

What am i doing wrong??

  • Solve it....

    It seems that Yahoo has bugs in the comet style notifications, when working without cookies.

    I have switched to cookies-based im token transfer and all works!
