Problem with Argus

I removed both of the auth auth files and it does the same thing, it doesn't
work on all the computers here at the office.  We do have cookies enable.

Here's what happens:
I go on the argus webpage, type in the username and password. When I click
on Login it authenticates because it tries to redirect except it goes back
to the login page.

I was running version 3.2.1, upgraded to 3.3 to see if that'd fix it, but
that didn't help

Do you have cookies disabled in your browser?  if so, enable them.

if not, try:
# rm /usr/local/argus/data/auth
# argusctl shutdown
   (wait for all argusd processes to stop)
# /etc/rc2.d/S99argusd start
   (or some such)

if neither fix your problem, give us a step-by-step detail of what is
1. you load up your browser
2. you enter
3. [...]

and either way, let us know the version of argus you're using.
