Perform direct site-to-site FTP with any FTP client
Authored by: jimmatthews on Aug 14, '03 04:06:58PM

You won't see anything with fs_usage because the data isn't going to disk, it's going network->RAM->network.

By default Fetch's server-to-server transfers work this way as well, but you can choose "Direct server-server transfers" in the Misc. section of Preferences to make the transfer go directly between the two servers. It won't work if the servers are configured to only accept transfers from the IP address of the logged-in client (which is why it's off by default), but if the servers allow 3rd party transfers it can be very handy (and fast).
