Proxy Cache Issue

Last Modified: 2011-09-20
I've taken over a project for a client who is behind a firewall, and they continue to see old versions of pages that I have updated on the hosting service.  When I navigate to the pages, I see the updated versions.

I think that the client must be connecting through a proxy that is holding old versions of the pages.

Will the techniques that cause browsers to NOT cache pages work for the proxies as well?  If there are methods that are specific to proxies, could someone let me know about them?

Watch Question


Are these static .HTML pages?
if so, one way to force a reload is to append a random string to each URL, for example:

<A href="somePage.html"  onclick="this.href='somePage.html?'+Math.random();return true;">link</a>
