Re: [squid-users] Dynamic Content through a Transparent Proxy

There is no such thing in HTTP as what you describe. Not sure what you
are talking about.

For stock quotes I have seen two approaches:

a) HTML pages with embedded quotes. The HTML is reloaded by the browser
at the update frequency.

b) Java applets showing the quotes, ans periodially polling the server
for new quotes.

In both cases it is the client who asks for the new content.
