    vb.net download file from FTP

    I have the following code:

    Dim FileName as string="ABC.csv"
    My.Computer.Network.DownloadFile("ftp://nec_stage.tradenex.com/IN/" + FileName, "C:\" + FileName, "nec_stage", "password")
                Dim TargetFile As New System.IO.FileInfo(Directory + FileName)
                Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + TargetFile.Name)
                Response.AddHeader("Content-Length", TargetFile.Length.ToString())
                Response.ContentType = "application/octet-stream"
    The code works. However, the above code will first download the file from FTP to C:\, then only read the file and let the user to choose which path they want the file to be save. Is there anyway to direct get the file from FTP and let the user choose which path to save without save it to C:\ first.

    This is because I get the following error when I trying to save the file to C:\ first.

    ASP.NET is not authorized to access the requested resource. Consider granting access rights to the resource to the ASP.NET request identity. ASP.NET has a base process identity (typically {MACHINE}\ASPNET on IIS 5 or Network Service on IIS 6) that is used if the application is not impersonating. If the application is impersonating via <identity impersonate="true"/>, the identity will be the anonymous user (typically IUSR_MACHINENAME) or the authenticated request user.
