Hi

I need to transfer 32GB of data between two remote servers. I don't have room on the source server to create a compressed archive.

Can I use the SFTP gui to do this without having to download to my local machine? I.e. can I have one server on the left and the other on the right and transfer files between them?

Thanks

Lee

If you open two SFTP windows (one to server A, the other to server B), you can copythe file from the remote pane of server 'A' and pasteit in the remote pane of server 'B'. This will not initiate a direct transfer between A and B, but will stream it through your PC. It will not land the file on your PC, but will use your PC as the secure conduit to transfer the file.

Your only other choice is to shell into server B, then sftp from B to A to initiate a server-to-server transfer.

Hope this helps. Sorry it may be too late.

Brian
