Caching(?) occuring when using CFtpConnection

Hi,

Iv got a basic ftp client that downloads files using CFtpConnection. Everything works great, except when I transfer two files of the same name but different sizes. The second file does not overwrite the first one, but appears to retrieve it from a cache (in wininet.dll perhaps?). When I shutdown the app and restart it again it does the transfer properly though. Iv tried creating my CInternetSession object with the INTERNET_FLAG_DONT_CACHE flag, but that doesn't help either. Could anyone help?

Thanx
Johan

INTERNET_FLAG_DONT_CACHE means that the request should write to the cache. If the cache already has the requested item, the library will still resolve the reference from cache.

To ask WININET to get the item from online, even if it is in the cache, you should use the INTERNET_FLAG_RELOAD flag.
