    XMLHTTP post vs get and squid cache (VB)


    I have a xmlhttp GET that works fine through a SQUID CACHE.
    When I do a POST, the squid cache denies it.

    Are there some thorns on a POST that stops it from returning the XML?
    Is there anyway I can authenticate to the squid cache in my code?
    RPC ?

    All replies considered...
    Thanks.

    The open method of the XMLHTTP object has optional user and password
    parameters. Are you using those?

    Does the request authenticate to the cache using this optional password/user.
    Is this password/user then picked up when the destination is reached?
    I will try this...
    Many thanks.

    Sorry, I have no idea--but since it looks like you weren't using them
    before, maybe you can inform the group if the user and password parameters
    work for you.

    Thanks,
    Russell
