Unfortunately I don't live behind a firewall either so I cannot help
you much with regard to testing - or should I say fortunately. As the
Java URLConnection stuff is supposed to do most of the magic, your
code should work - though I didn't test it either.

Please change the code to setUseFiletime to either take a boolean
argument (requires a rather recent Ant) or use Project.toBoolean to
line up with the boolean like attributes of other tasks.

Well, one could do the FTP stuff oneself and try to parse the result to
the LIST command ... That's half way to a PUT task I guess.

Take a look at Expand or Untar for examples of abusing Touch for this.
