The backdoor site apparently uses a little different cookie than the main one. If you have a cookie for the main one, it doesn't work when you go to the backdoor. Hence you're GUEST there.

If you get a new cookie by logging in while you're at the backdoor, it appears to overwrite the one from the main server, and you'll be logged in there.

When you come back here (main server), with the cookie you got at the backdoor, you'll be GUEST here until you log in again.

If the main server is bogged down, you can't log in at the backdoor, because the member info needed to verify the login (your name/password) apparently is only on the main server. If you have a backdoor cookie it will work there but not on main. You can't log in and get a backdoor cookie unless the main server is available.

Apparently you can't have cookies valid on both sites on your own machine at the same time. (You could perhaps export one of each into separate folders, and restore whichever one you need, if you want to be logged in on either site.)

At least that's how it worked when I tested it by logging in (while main was accessible) at the backdoor.
