How to copy file from local system to other system in C# (windows app)?

I need to load help files from my windows C# application and move/copy to other system (to its local drive). Application (same C# windows application) on the local system will use it for help.

What needs to be done to accomplish this?

I understand

File.Copy()
but i don't know, will it hold for remote system also?

Answer
File.Copy(
    @"C:\localpath\file.hlp", 
    @"\\remotemachinename\localpathonremotemachine\file.hlp");

Or something along those lines... the second value is a UNC path.

And in case the target location needs a login and password, the following answer is applicable: Copy file to remote computer using remote admin credentials (Thanks to Carlos Rendon for finding it).
