It is often necessary to clear the proxy cache data for a web site in order to ensure that you do not have corrupted files, or often because you have just made that URL non-cacheable.

Unfortunately the standard method (UNLOAD PROXY, LOAD PROXY -CC) clears all cache nodes, is slow, and sometimes unloading PROXY.NLM causes a problem.

Here is a method that will selectively clear one site from proxy cache.

In the browser, prepend "1@" to the URL.

Example: To refresh the old www.novell.com page in the cache, enter http://1@www.novell.com in the browser.
