Topic: Acrobat Reader 5 VS MS Proxy Server 2.0
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 51353

There is the infrastructure :

"Web Server"
Windows NT Server 4.0 SP6

"Web proxy"
Windows NT Server 4.0 SP6
Microsoft Proxy Server 2.0

"Web Client"
Windows NT Workstation 4.0
Internet Explorer 5.5
Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0

There is the situation :
The Web Proxy and the Web client are linked by LAN at 10Mbs. The Web client pass through the Web Proxy to access the Web Server. A slow speed link (64Kb) bind the Proxy Server and the Web Server. I made a PDF file with Adobe Acrobat and stored it in the Web Server. The Web client access to PDF file by an HTML file with an hyperlink. Then, Internet Explorer opens the PDF with Adobe Acrobat Reader. Everything works fine.

There's the problem :
When I open the PDF with IE and Acrobat Reader plug-in, my Proxy Server can't do caching. When I open the log of Proxy Server, there's a lot of GET instruction for the same PDF file. Each of them have the HTTP Result Code 10054 except the last GET instruction with result code 206.

I found in Microsoft Knowledge base the caching criteria of MS Proxy Server. The HTTP Result code must be 200 (success), so it's why Proxy doesn't cache my PDF file. I want to know if there's a way to keep Acrobat Reader integration (display PDF in browser enabled) with Internet Explorer and do only one GET instruction to be able to cache PDFs with MS Proxy Server.

PS: I must keep "display PDF in browser" enabled in the Adobe Acrobat Reader because i'm using the FDFtoolkit feature.

Thanks for your help!
