in reply to IE wont post after initial request

IE does not like cache pragmas very much... more information here and here

Instead you can approach in this way:

1) instead of a static html form, generate it with Perl
2) in place of the simple name of your script (to put in the "action" attribute of the form) put the name followed by a ? and a random number.

So, IE will think that you're calling a different script.

For example:

my $rand_num=rand time; $rand_num*=10000; my $cgi='mycgi.pl?'.$rand_num;


Kudos to larsen for showing me this trick

    I gave this a try and it didn't fix the issue.

    Unless anyone else another suggestion it looks like I am going to start working on a complex alternate solution (dealing with multiple Apache Servers on the same system with different configs, etc.)

    Thanks a ton to everyone who submitted their suggestions. Maybe the person with the answer to this will see it today?
