If you have access to an app that lets you set custom headers (curl,
wget, squidclient, etc) you could try sending a request for the object
with the header:

   Cache-Control: max-age=0, must-revalidate, proxy-revalidate

and hope that at least one of those mechanisms is available.


Please use Squid 2.6.STABLE19 or 3.0.STABLE4
