Yes, it's a special feature of the ftp protocol to tell Server A to send
file to Server B control from Client C while not requiring the data to
go through the client.  Now, for a program that actually uses that, I'm
not sure, seems like ftpcopy might do it in the ports tree.  Though, I
really think you should be using a more secure protocol like scp or
sftp, but I don't know if they support the direct server to server copy
like ftp.  Anyone else tried it?

I sense much NT in you.
NT leads to Bluescreen.
Bluescreen leads to downtime.
Downtime leads to suffering.
NT is the path to the darkside.
Powerful Unix is.
