(I don't have the original message so I am replying to the reply):
The most recent parser still uses the WinInet cache, unless you
use the ServerHttp object.
It is possible to explicitly flush a URL from the cache using the
DeleteUrlCacheEntry API. Here is a VB snippet:
Public Declare Function DeleteUrlCacheEntry Lib "Wininet.dll" _
Alias "DeleteUrlCacheEntryA" (ByVal lpszUrl As String) As Boolean
' RemoveFromCache -
' Delete the given URL from the browser cache. Return True if removed,
Public Sub RemoveFromCache(strURL As String)
Dim bRemoved As Boolean
bRemoved = DeleteUrlCacheEntry(strURL)

It sounds like you may not be using the most recent MS XML Parser. Earlier
ones used an HTTP library that was riddled with problems from a server
perspective, especially related to caching and proxy server acess. I
have some code you can use at
It's a service that runs using ASP. The source code for the main file is
freely available and deals with all varieties of RSS.
