Perform direct site-to-site FTP with any FTP client
Authored by: verdon on Aug 14, '03 11:46:17AM


I do like Fetch and use this functionality a lot. Actually though, if you watch the status bars carefully, it is actually DL'ing to temp files on your local machine and UL'ing them to the second host and then cleaning up behind itself. On a high speed connection, this gives the illusion that you're going host to host, and is certainly convenient, but it is just an illusion. This becomes very obvious when working via dial-up ;)

I don't think this is a Fetch thing, but suspect it is just the nature of FTP. I could be wrong, but would imagine that Transit is doing something similar.
