Wow. Given that sort of network lockdown, I wouldn't be too surprised if
the problem _is_ server side content filtering. If so, there's a very
good chance that renaming the file to something like ".txt" or ".html"
will permit others to download it (then rename it or tell their apps
it's really an RTF file). If you get a chance I'd be interested to see
if it works.

Of course, decent content filtering wouldn't be fooled by that, but
decent content filtering wouldn't send a 404 when blocking a file
instead of a 403 either.

The web host is running Apache 1.3 from OpenPKG repositories (or claims
to be) so there shouldn't be anything really weird going on. Maybe they
just use a mod-rewrite rule to rewrite "banned" file extensions to a
file that doens't exist, causing the 404.
