Is it possible that your server can download files from an other server to itself? So basically the idea that you normally download something to your own computer, only now the server is that computer.
The benefit is that this way you can have your server download on a fast connection and that (if your server has a fast connection itself) you can download way much faster to your PC's HD than from the original server which can have a slow connection.
Is this possible, and is there software to do this?
If both servers support FXP you can do a direct transfer using FTP from one server to the other. This skips downloading on your own machine and does a direct transfer using both servers fast connections.
You will need a client such as FlashFXP to perform this.
Doing site to site FTP transfers has been supported in the FTP protocol since it was originally developed.
No special "FXP support" or FTP client is required. You can do this by making an FTP control connection to two servers, and then have them establish an FTP data connection to each other.
FTP clients like FlashFXP just make this easier for windows people by adding it to their GUI.
