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.
