Hello,

I understand using Java, Javascript, plugins, referrers, etc, may reveal someone's IP independently of if the user is using the Tor network, but can cookies do that?

My intent is to be able to sign in and participate in an online forum that requires cookies to remember username and password, otherwise it will not let a user to sign in. No javascript required to sign in (although javascript is required for other forum functions).

So, the question is, if I enable cookies to be able to sign in, could that site indentify my IP only from the cookies?

Thanks for the help.
