With a packet sniffer I could check the HTTP communication when you download the file.

First, you send a GET request:

GET /files/trx-update2/xbot.dll HTTP/1.1
Host: nfk.pro2d.ru
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:9.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/9.0.1
Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8
Accept-Language: en-us,en;q=0.5
Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate
Accept-Charset: ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7
Connection: keep-alive

The response is like that:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Sun, 08 Jan 2012 08:59:26 GMT
Server: Apache/2.2.19 (Unix) mod_fastcgi/mod_fastcgi-SNAP-0910052141
Last-Modified: Thu, 05 Jan 2012 17:28:44 GMT
ETag: "2002197-97200-4b5cb439a0b00"
Accept-Ranges: bytes
Content-Length: 619008
Connection: close
Content-Type: application/x-msdownload

[.dll DATA HERE]

At least the last modification date is there.

I was asked to look at this thread. It is indeed a gaming site that the OP is trying to access - but all he is trying to do is to read the DTG of a file, not automate a game. I am happy for it to continue.
