#2117 closed Feature request

Allow local filesystem to be another ftp server

I would love to see if the "Local filesystem" on the left
hand side could be another ftp server. This way I would
be able to transer files from one ftp server to another ftp
server without having to down load and then re upload
the files.

I believe that this can be accomplished in non-passive

Filezilla would connect to server a, and server b.

Issue the transfer command to server a but specify
server b IP, then issue server b to port command to
accept server a's request.

I do not know if this is too complicated and if it is only
available to ftp. At minimum it would be nice to connect
to two ftp servers and have filezilla maintain "tempory"
files while the transfer is happening.

You mean FXP?

FXP is a protocol, with which servers can exchange files
without downloading the files to the client.

I would like such a feature too!
