Passing file from geoprocessing script to geoprocessing service

I have a serverside python based geoprocessing service that takes a file as its one input parameter.  How can I call this service from a python based geoprocesing script running on the desktop?  What type of argument should I pass?  How should I read that argument on the server side?  The file is a binary file (think jpg or zip) not a text file and the server does not have access to the desktop except via service calls.
