Default Create/Upload a file on a Remote Machine

Hi guys,

I recently needed to upload a file from my computer to a remote computer. I really didn't know how to do this in C#, so I quickly just made a web application in ASP.NET 2.0 because it was easier (well, maybe because I just knew how to do it). Is there anyway someone can give me a link with some resources about this issue? I can't seem to find any. Or if not links, can someone give me some direction as to what I should be searching for to do what I want to do?

I don't need a client/server application. I just want a client application to select a file and copy the selected file on a remote server somewhere (that is hard coded). So it is generally an uploading of a file. The reason I need to do this is because I want to do a Bulk Insert into SQL, and this SQL Server is located on a remote machine. Well, the only way to do a Bulk Insert is to have SQL see the file, which means it has to be local to the SQL Server.

Do I need to utilize sockets for this?

Is there a better way to insert many rows into SQL from a remote location?

Thanks, Smbat

I want to send the files over the network and save them on the remote machine.
Also the remote server is not a web or FTP server.
So how can i copy these files to the remote server whose IP is known.
These files contains a windows service so after copying I need to install and run this windows service.
Could you please tell me how should I do this thing in .NET
