I have no answers just some not-very-experienced ideas which you may have already tried. The good thing is you have something (2 somethings) to compare against. Netscape works on the same machine as the non-working IE? Compare the machine / browser configurations. Are all going through proxy or not? Are you sure? :^) Webserver and clients on the same lan or not? If not is there some sort of load balancing system in place. Cache settings. Expiry (I'm not very experienced in this and I don't pretend to understand fully) - webserver - cgi header eg. print "Pragma: no-cache" - html meta eg. print {<META HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">} You didn't load the REBOL plugin on this machine did you? (grabbing at straws here) What is the extension for your REBOL CGI script (.R or .CGI, etc)? If it is .R, is it possible to change it, and if so, what happens if you change it to .CGI say? When you do eventually get to the bottom of it - please tell us what happened. I want to dodge that nasty pothole if I have to venture down the same road as you. :^) Simple technology we have today ;^) Regards, Brett.
