Hi
I just tried to create a small programm which is able to send Files from one Server to another without beeing (temporarily) downloaded to my PC.
Is this possible to do with the plain java-sources?

I haven't heard of the Fxp protocol. The Ftp protocol used to be supported in the sun.net package but I believe this is no longer distributed starting with JDK 1.4. In any case Sun advises that the sun. packages should never be used as they are unsupported and can be removed from the JDK without notice.
There are several Java FTP components available online. In fact my company JSCAPE provides such a component in its iNet Factory product.
Could you explain more about your requirements. I would be happy to help point you in the right direction.
Thanks,

Within the FTP-Protocol there is the ability to send files directly from server to server, e.g. you connect to both servers, select the file on one server and the destination directory on the other server, then click transfer and the file is being sent directly to the destination without being downloaded first to my pc and uploaded afterwards to the destination server. thus you can "save" your bandwith and use the hi-speed connections from webspace-hosts etc.
