I would use normal cgi for uploading. for polling a static pages which is changed each time a file is uploaded. maybe an upload-counter inside. To tell what to download either an index-file or a cgi-script which gets info about what is downloaded (like this upload-counter.). for download i would use static pages, but do not know about autentification.

Maybe Sunanda with LDS for the And myself two prototypes, but they are not used much.
