Working Group of the IETF.

       Title     : Notification for Proxy Caches
       Author(s) : P. Hallam-Baker
       Filename  : draft-ietf-http-proxy-note-00.txt
       Pages     : 6
       Date      : 02/23/1996

A mechanism to enable better functioning of proxies is proposed. This
mechanism allows proxies to inform a remote server about transactions
performed using the cache and for servers to inform proxies when data
becomes stale.

Internet-Drafts are available by anonymous FTP.  Login with the username
"anonymous" and a password of your e-mail address.  After logging in,
type "cd internet-drafts" and then
     "get draft-ietf-http-proxy-note-00.txt".

Internet-Drafts are also available by mail.

Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type:
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-http-proxy-note-00.txt".

NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
      MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
      feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
      command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
      a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
      exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
      "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split
      up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
      how to manipulate these messages.

For questions, please mail to Internet-Drafts@cnri.reston.va.us.

Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
