copy over FTP commands

Hi,
following problem. On a FTP-Server there is a big file (600MB). On the FTP-Client (my PC) there are only 100 MB free.

The file on FTP-Server (source) is stored on \files\source\600MB.exe. I want to bring the file to the destoination (on FTP-Server) \files\dest\600MB.exe. How can I do this without get-the file and put-the file to my small client (and without help from the FTP-Server-Admin).

Is there a command like:
FTP> cp \files\source\600MB.exe \files\dest\600MB.exe

bye cbo

Interesting idea, but I don't know any FTP client that supports this sort of thing.

Assuming a GUI interface then just change the directory you save the file to.

Assuming command line:

cd \files\dest
ftp <machine>
....
FTP> bin
FTP> get files\source\600MB.exe
....
FTP> bye

If you have login & password to ftp (if not anonymous), you can telnet , and then ftp to another.

if server is anonymous ftp, (IE internet), you must have login on the box on which you vant receive, and then ftp the server from it; use login anonymous and any password

If I understand the question right, this is what you'd need to do.

ftp> get source/file_a destination/file_b
200 PORT command successful.
150 ASCII data connection for source/file_a () (16 bytes).
226 ASCII Transfer complete.
local: destination/file_b remote: source/file_a
17 bytes received in 0.023 seconds (0.72 Kbytes/s)
ftp> ls destination
200 PORT command successful.
150 ASCII data connection for /bin/ls () (0 bytes).
file_b

Of course you'd need permissions to the destination area.

no, ozo is right!

I would rename the file without download to my destination.

rename source/file_a source/file_b works great !!

OZO please answer again, that I can give you the points!!
