Streaming from another server

P: n/a
All,

If have an incoming request can I point the response stream to another
webserver in order to stream the data.

Consider this, you have an ASP.NET website that need to send the user a huge
file, the huge file is on another ASP.NET website (and server) you could do
a GET on the other server and resend the content but this will consume lots
of memory, can you not just stream the response from the other sever.

Can this be done? maybe using WriteFile and using a FileHandle, eg can the
FileHandle be a StreamHandle??

Cheers

Steve
