Righto. Here's my problem. I'm running a redirector for all the commonly-
grabbed files. I want to purge all the half-finished, and full files from
squid. I have a problem when I try to purge FTP's tho:

Escape character is '^]'.
PURGE ftp://ftp.blizzard.com/pub/demos/diablosw.exe HTTP/1.0

HTTP/1.0 501 Cache Detected Error
Content-type: text/html

<TITLE>ERROR: The requested URL could not be retrieved</TITLE>
<H2>The requested URL could not be retrieved</H2>
While trying to retrieve the URL:
The following error was encountered:
<LI><STRONG>Unsupported request</STRONG>
<P>This means that:
    This request method is not supported for this protocol.

Generated by squid/1.NOVM.10@proxy.rpi.net.au

[Apologies for the large quote]

Am I doing anything wrong? I can purge HTTP requests without a problem
