Hi,
I am new to web services and i am facing a problem.

I am interested in downloading some file from internet and use it for
furthur processing For eg. i have a file at a the following URL and i
want to download that file in the web service which i am coding and
use it for furthur.

In normal window application i can achieve this by the following
code


link : http://www2.parc.com/csl/members/woodruff/publications/1996-Woodruff-WWW5-WWW.pdf

WebClient WC=new WebClient();

string fileName = "c:\\" + link.Substring(link.LastIndexOf("/")+1);

WC.DownloadFile(link,fileName);



But if i try to achieve the same thing in web service using c#.net
with the following code i am not able to do it.

WebClient WC=new WebClient();

string fileName = "c:\\" + link.Substring(link.LastIndexOf("/")+1);

WC.DownloadFile(link,Server.MapPath(fileName));

can some one suggest me how to achieve the it web services.I am also
intrested in furthur performing some operation on this file for
example reading the data from the file and use it.

Thanks for the help.

Why are you not able to do it? What error message are you getting, if any?
