Here openfile.Filename gives physical path which i couldnt access from other system other than my localsystem

I need virtual path so that i can access from anywhere

System.Windows.Forms.OpenFileDialog openfile = new System.Windows.Forms.OpenFileDialog();
string pathname = Path.GetFileName(openfile.FileName);
byte[] byteArray =System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(openfile.FileName);

Acc. to me you can do this:

Add a folder, example 'Uploads' in your application.

Save FileName in a String Variable.
Save file from OpenFile Dialog in this folder using Dialog.SaveAs(Server.MapPth (Folder Path)), temporary.

Then access this file using fileName from 'Uploads'.
Delete this file from 'Uploads' when done.
