    I wanted to throw this question out there hoping someone would have some details.

    I recently did ESPN Fantasy Football draft with friends. Everyone in the group but one guy had logged into their account for the first time. The guy that had logged in before, got a popup that said “Cookies must be enabled to connect to this site”, something like that. He was connecting via “Chrome”. We were on our buddies wifi and the guy who couldn’t connect usually connects from his home. I checked the settings and cookies were enabled. Essentially I ended up doing ipconfig /flushdns, and behold it fixed it. My thought was that the issue had to do with connectivity from the new network.

    Does flushdns modify the session cookie/cookies or have anything to do with the cookies?
    What all is stored in the cookies?
    Why would flushdns change anything?

    Anyone know of any good resources on what is stored or any good diagrams? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
