My initial thought would be to have the process on the macosforge  
machine do a remote shell command to get my box to pull the file into  
an area that I set up to be served via http. Then I would probably  
cron up something to remove any files there after a few days.

Alternatively, I could write a CGI (or find one?) that does the ftp  
fetch and serves up the file via http.
