you cannot just copy a file to any server for obvious reasons.
Do you control the server you want to copy the file to?

The problem I guess is that the file is PDF. Can it be copied ?

yes you'd just read the bytes and copy them directly.

eg. if you were running on the server that you wanted to copy to it would be easy.

InputStream in = pdfurl.openStream();
OutputStream out = new BufferedOutputStream(new FileOutputStream(pdfname));
byte[] buf = new byte[1024];
int nread = 0;
while (-1!=(nread=in.read(buf)))
{
   out.write(buf, 0, nread);
}
