Request new feature - transfer files directly from one ftp account to another

#1 Post by hiduke » 2020-09-12 21:00

Currently, as far as I can figure out, if I wish to move a file from one ftp server to another ftp server I must download that file to my computer from server A and then upload it again to server B. The same goes for copying a file from one file folder on server A to another file folder on the same server.
Am I missing something or would this be a new feature for FileZilla?
If it is new, I hope it would not be too difficult to implement as it would save huge amounts of time and avoid a lot of grief in missing a file, etc.

FileZilla does not support server-to-server connections and transfers, and it never will. The reason is that this feature cannot work securely (with FTP over TLS).
