The Question about Amazon Affiliate Cookies

Talk about anything relating to Affiliate Marketing here.

I have been doing amazon affiliate for 3 month do not know what cookie is amazon cookie. not only that but i cant find any cookies that have the touted 24 hr expiration date. I'm trying to figure out the following questions:

-What is the affiliate cookie name?
-If I click on the same affiliate link twice, will i be issued 2 unique affiliate cookies (both pointing to the same affiliate)?
-If I copy the affiliate cookie from host1 (which clicked on the link) directly to host2's browser cookie file (which hasn't clicked the link), is there some sort of server session that will prevent host2 from using the affiliate cookie from host1?

Any feedback on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
