We faced the exact same problem: maybe you could check out a Java FTP applet. There are some here, but Google will no doubt be able to dig up more. <http://www.hotscripts.com/Java/Applets/File_Management/> I haven't used any of these in earnest, but I demoed a few and they seemed good. They're not all free. With an FTP connection (as opposed to HTTP) I believe your users won't experience these time-out issues. -Chris PS We've decided in the end, for various authentication/SLA reasons, to go for a hand-rolled executable we will distribute to our client base.
