je kan er ook mee FXP'en ik als beta tester
FXP stands for File eXchange Protocol and it let's you copy files from one
FTP-server to another. Normally you transfer files using the FTP protocol
between your machine and a FTP-server, and the maximum transfer speed
depends on the speed of your Internet connection (e.g. 56k, cable or T1).
When transferring files between two remote hosts using a FXP client, the
maximum transfer speed does not depend on your connection but only on the
connection between the two hosts, which is
usually much faster than your own connection. Because it is a direct
connection you will not be able to see the progress or the transfer speed of
Although FXPing is very easy, there are a few restrictions to transferring
the files. Both hosts have to support PASV mode and must allow PORT commands
to foreign hosts. The FXP client tells the
destination FTP to listen for a connection by sending a "PASV" command. The
source FTP then connects to the data port reported by the destination server
(after a success PASV command). So all the data goes directly from the
source to the destination FTP and both servers do only report status
messages on fail/success to the FTP client. At least one of the two remote
hosts has to be a non-NT FTP-server, like a UNIX host or anything else. You
can move files from a non-NT FTP-server to a NT FTP-server and the other way
around, but you CANNOT FXP from a NT to an NT.
The Ports that will be used are dictated by the Server(s). The PASV command
requests a list of the availible alternate ports that the server can
send/recieve on. In FXP this command is issued by the transmitting server,
the list is recieved, and a port is agreed upon. There (to my knowledge) is
not any list of standard port used.
To FXP in CuteFTP just open two instances of the program and drag-&-drop
from one remote window to the other remote window. To do this in Pro just
open two remote sites or right click on a file and select "Download
Advanced" > "Site to Site".
