why dont you write a script to download the file to your server.
Whatever php you write will run on the server itself..

try this...

<?php
$userfile="http://www.google.com/index.html";
$copyfile="index.html";
if(file_exists($userfile)) { echo "File already exists"; }
else
{
copy($userfile,$copyfile);
print "File downloaded";
}
?>
