Server to server FTP (2 posts)

    Can I use Fetch to initiate a server to server FTP completely bypassing my slower network? I have FTP access to both servers.

    If not Fetch, is there a way?

    Fetch can initiate direct server-to-server transfers, if both servers support them. First, check the "Use direct server-to-server transfers" in the Obscure section of Preferences. Then connect to both servers, and drag files between the two transfer windows.

    I should note that for security reasons most FTP servers are configured in a way that blocks direct server-to-server transfers.
