Generally we do the following to read the file if that is on same server:

log = File.ReadAllText(@"C:\App_Data\kewl.log");


There is web service running on SERVER1. The requirement is that this web service should read a file which resides on SERVER2

SERVER1: web server
SERVER2: web service server

how can we make this happen in c# i.e. reading a file on different server.

please help in finding the steps or how to do it or any possible blockers.
