    As in say tell IE that the pages on your intranet expire instantly when viewed and not to use the cache?
    If so what webserver you got?

    only one page, on one website, not all websites.

    Suspect it's only possible in the proxy somewhere?

    Of course users could just press Ctrl + F5..

    add the following to your page

    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache">
    <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="-1">
    </head>

    that should instruct the browser not to cache the page

    Some browsers don't always play properly (and some web servers also have problems).

    One of the things we've done for a lot of pages is to generate links that inlcude a random number; this way the page request is seen as being for a new page each time - ie the link looks something like:

    http://server.domain.tld/page.asp?param=.12345

    The above techniques also work for proxies, which also cache pages. Well, Squid at any rate. I'm not sure what fun and games ISA gets up to.

    Isa can be told pages not to cache and you can override the pages policy I think.
    Its pretty straight forward to do as well.
