Very probably. Make sure that you have:

http_access allow manager foobar
http_access allow foobar
miss_access allow foobar

(where 'foobar' is an ACL that refers to the machine that is running the
cache-manager cgi. Most people seem to omit the miss_access line).

Oh, also remember that if you are running the CGI on the _same_ machine, and
you don't type 'localhost' for the address, then the address won't _come_ from

Did you read the documentation AND the FAQ?
If not, I'll probably still answer your question, but my patience will
be limited, and you take the risk of sarcasm and ridicule.
