Net::HTTP Logging in / Persistent sessions problem


I am able to login to a website at authenticate.domain.com but when I
attempt to visit panel.domain.com it appears the http session has been
lost.

Code:
               Net::HTTP.start('authenticate.domain.com',80){|http|
                        log = http.post('script.php',params)
                        puts log.body
                }

                Net::HTTP.start('panel.domain.com',80){|http|
                        puts http.get('/index.cfm').body
                }
--------

So, what could be the problem? Either the second Net::HTTP.start call is
beginning a new session or the first call is forgetting a vital cookie.
Anyone? Thanks!

looking at the both api's and you'll see it clearly...

Net::HTTP doesn't save your cookies.  If you'd like to have your cookies
automatically saved between each request, check out WWW::Mechanize.

Ok, great. After doing some studying I understand a bit more now. Thank
you!

I've got my script logging in but the session still doesn't persist. I
auto-follow a few redirects and I end up back where I was (not logged
in).

I did notice Net::HTTP's get_fields('set-cookie').

Do I need to use set_content_type('set-cookie',@@cookie)? where @@cookie
= get_fields('set-cookie') # of the first login attempt?

Oh. Then what does get_fields('set-cookie') do?
