How can I prevent XmlHttpRequest from caching requests?

Hi guys,

On the following code:

URL="https://api2.XXXXXXXXXXX.com/api?3243423432"
set httpRequest = CreateObject("Msxml2.ServerXMLHTTP.4.0")
httpRequest.open "GET", url, FALSE
httpRequest.send
strResponseText = httpRequest.responseText

I am reading a particular value. The problem I have is with the ServerXMLHTTP cache. It is not refreshing the value. I tried something like:

URL="https://api2.XXXXXXXXXXX.com/api?3243423432&time=" & now()

But still the same.

Is there any way to prevent ServerXMLHTTP to cache the results?

Thanks

It shouldn't be able to cache with the date/time appended to the URL. Maybe a very smart (firewall/proxy) cache is doing it on the server's network. You could try changing it to a "POST" instead of a "GET" to add another level of non-cacheability...
