File replication - preferably FTP

Hello,

We have a Windows server 2003 environment and I have been using SyncbackSE to replicate files and folders from one server to 3 other web servers.  

The problem I am having is that I want to use FTP or secure FTP to transfer the files from 1 FTP server to another FTP server.  Most of the software I have found only allows a transfer from one server using a share, to another server using FTP.

Is there a relatively inexpensive piece of software that I can use to use FTP or SFTP from a source FTP server to another destination FTP server?

Also, I wouldn't mind looking into some other enterprise ready file replication solutions if you have any ideas.  

Thanks

Hi,
'rsync' would be perfect for that purpose, although not FTP.
And yes, it's for Windows!

rsync uses ssh, just as sftp does.
