What files? Do you mean some common files, such as Word documents? Or the html or aspx files of the website?

For the former you could create a webservice to expose the files to both applications. For the latter, why?

If you don't want to create a Web service and really want to work with some existing Web site, you can do it using the techniques of Web scraping. Please see:[^].

Basically, you will need to use the class System.Net.HttpWebRequest, please see:[^].

For some more detail, please see my past answers:
get specific data from web page[^],
How to get the data from another site[^].
