force browser to download large file from external server

P: 1
am trying to download and rename a file (about 3-4GB) from external server, but I don't want to copy file's byte array on my web server and then send to browser, because it takes too much time.

I tried this

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <a class="downloads" download="SomeName.m4v" href="http://Externalserver/file.m4v">Donwload!</a>
but it works only in Google Chrome.

I am using Asp.net/c#

Is there some way to do something like this?
thanks for help :)
