site to site ftp clients?

I want to move data from one site to another without bringing it down to my local OS X machine.

Are there any ftp clients out there for OS X that will do a site to site xfer?

Thanks!

command-line ftp client

The command-line ftp client (that you use in Terminal) has a command 'proxy' which seems to be intended for what you want (server to server transfers). See the man page for 'ftp'

I think you are confused. I was talking about using the command-line client on your own OS X machine. It would be just like using a GUI client on that machine except you need to figure out what commands to type instead of just using menus etc. Read the man page by typing 'man ftp' in a Terminal window on your machine. Look for the 'proxy' command. I haven't used the proxy command so don't know more than what it says in the man page.

If both machines have SSH turned on, check out scp. It can do remote-to-remote transfer using SSH:

scp -R mikey@host.com:"Desktop/teh\ files/" mikey@host2.com:"Desktop/"

Fetch can.

Fetch even lets you transfer files and directories directly between two servers, simply by dragging the icons from one to the other.

Fetch's UI is kinda crappy, though . . .

Check THIS out:

1. Mount the source FTP server in the Finder with command-k.

2. Launch Transmit (prolly works with other clients, but that's what I use).

3. Navigate to the computer level with the pop-up menu on the left-hand side of the Transmit window.

4. Mount your target FTP server in the right-hand side.

5. Do what comes naturally, and drag your stuff over. :-)

I tried that on a whim just now, and it works amazingly well.

Agreed... not just kinda, very.

Indeed, this can be used with just about any FTP client that supports drag-and-drop, so that makes this technique accessible to just about any GUI FTP client on OS X. I'd say this is worthy of a hint.

Just submitted it. :-)

The problem with Fetch's UI is that it hasn't really changed since System 7.5. It doesn't function like any OS X app, really, which is a bit of a pain in the butt. :-/

I want to know if we can use a proxy for example : http://193.251.181.135:8080/

And connect after on the ftp.
My problem is : if i want to connect to my ftp, i must have a french IP but i'm in ireland for 1 year so i try to pass by a proxy.

Thanks
