Thanks, Sarah.

FWIW, I've found that I can upload the file to the same server without 
difficulty at home, it's only here in the office that the connection 
times out.

I think it may be a router thang, but I've reviewed those settings and I 
can't turn up anything that seems relevant.

But oddly enough, I find that I can upload the same file to Dreamhost 
without difficulty; it's only with Bluehost that I have this issue.
