I think you are asking about ZipFile.AddEntry().  You didn't say so;  I'm guessing here.

DotNetZip accepts streams as sources for the data for an entry in the zip archive.

My suggestion is to open a stream that reads from the URL., and pass that stream to ZipFile.AddEntry(). 

If I guessed wrong, and you're asking about something else, you'll need to be more specific.

good luck.
