Default How to read simple txt file from URL?

Plz help,
I have problem with reading txt file from URL. I tried with File.OpenText:

filetoread = MapPath("http://www.sitename/file.txt")
Dim filestream As StreamReader
filestream = File.OpenText(filetoread)

And when I run it, Error Message comes:
Map paths expected to be virtual

Does anyone knows how to solve this problem?

Thx.

you shuld use WebClient class
the following MSDN example downloads a file from http://www.contoso.com to the local hard drive.
Code:
string remoteUri = "http://www.contoso.com/library/homepage/images/";
string fileName = "ms-banner.gif", myStringWebResource = null;
// Create a new WebClient instance.
WebClient myWebClient = new WebClient();
// Concatenate the domain with the Web resource filename.
myStringWebResource = remoteUri + fileName;
Console.WriteLine("Downloading File \"{0}\" from \"{1}\" .......\n\n", fileName, myStringWebResource);
// Download the Web resource and save it into the current filesystem folder.
myWebClient.DownloadFile(myStringWebResource,fileName);        
Console.WriteLine("Successfully Downloaded File \"{0}\" from \"{1}\"", fileName, myStringWebResource);
Console.WriteLine("\nDownloaded file saved in the following file system folder:\n\t" + Application.StartupPath);
