URI Update Notification Through Firewalls

There was this tool that notified you of changes to a page. They never seemed to work. I've had things on a page that updated, and the URI didn't report anything back.

What I'd like is a tool that reports changes to specific content, but works with anything on the internet, even stuff behind a firewall.

That way the URI would include the access code, and send the change notifications through the firewall, and let me know when a privately-housed .pdf file got removed, updated, or was reformatted, downloaded, or someone was linking to it on an internal blog.

Then I could integrate this information with the site-stats info, and find out whether they're ignoring the information or paying attention to it, by page, and how long they were on each adobe page.

Can't XML be used to monitor Adobe document reviews: Popular pages, time spent on content vs page; and then analyze this and present it in an aggregator, and mix it up with other pages in a summary report, then recombine it for a final report?
