Transferring files directly from one FTP to another without downloading to local server

#1 Post by caseq » 2022-01-26 21:03

Can anyone advise how to go about transferring files from one FTP site directly to another without needing to download the files to a local server location as an in-between step?

Additionally, does anyone know if this can be done in large targeted batches (like can I provide filezilla a list of files I want pulled and have it directly send them to another FTP without needing to download to my desktop)?

If Filezilla does not have the capabilities to do this how are other people solving this problem? What programs are you using?

Thanks so much for your help!
Best,
Elizabeth

Not possible, the protocol lacks support for this.

It is impossible for FTP. You need to control/remotely control one of the FTP server, then do tricks. If 2 servers both are out of your control then no way
