Perform direct site-to-site FTP with any FTP client
Authored by: diamondsw on Aug 14, '03 11:49:18AM

While this will not actually deposit the file on your computer (depending on how Apple implemented Finder FTP), you are NOT doing direct FTP to FTP site transfers. That's a specific protocol known as FXP, which is generally not enabled on FTP servers (pureftpd.org had a good description of FXP, if I recall). The file is still being transferred to your computer, then out to the FTP site, using your bandwidth twice.
