How to copy files within Local Area Network (LAN)

P: n/a
Hi, I am making a simple backup program where the files selected can be
transfered from a source to a destination. The source/destination could be
inside user's own PC or a different PC within a local network.

I have tried to use File.Copy and it seems to work fine, but I need to show
a progress while copying the file (very large file) and better, can resume
from the point it break. File.Copy doesn't seem to support those two
features. What should I do to make this kind of file transferring, if it is
possible? Please help and advise. Thanks in advance.
