Two options:

1) You can recompile PHP with the startrek module and use startrek_transport() 
to instantly transfer anything (data, even physical objects) from anywhere to 
anywhere else.

2) You can use telepathic means to read the data stored on the client, then 
type it into a file and save onto the server.

But technically speaking, both of the above are still variations of 
'uploading' the file onto the server. So another option is:

3) Install a webserver on the client and serve the files from there instead.
