I have a reporting application that runs on a remote device.  Users access reports via ftp.  The users access the ftp server via Windows Explorer or any other ftp client.  Some users are complaining that they have to refresh their clients to see new reports.  So, I'm looking for solutions to do an auto-refresh.

I've looked at core-ftp, ftp via Windows Explorer, etc, and I see nothing that would enable this.  
I see nothing in the ftp protocol that would support the ftp server pushing an update to the client.

Any ideas or suggestions?
