First, you can use the ftp protocol.
Second, it depends what your OS is.
i.e. if the both of them are UNIX-es, you can use simple tcp/ip protocols like rcp, rsh, etc.
If it is other OSes then the solution will look the same depends on what is it.

i.e. between two unixes :

1. rcp -p <source_host>:/<filename> <dest_host>:/<where_to_put>
2. (cd <source_dir>;tar cvf - .) | rsh <dest_host> "(cd <dest_dir>; tar xvf -)"

between to NT-s :

copy <source_file> \\<dest_comp>\<share-name>\<sub-dir>

These are the most simple ways to copy files between two systems.

But, if I want to write a program on Windows which can transfer a file from a FTP to another as both are on UNIX, how can I achieve that issue ?

Anyway, thank you very mcuh !

What about writing a little utility that takes the file from the source to the Windows station (into temporary location), and after that, put it on the destination, all with the ftp commands.
