I want to move a huge amount of data (e.g 25 mb to 50 mb) from one remote server to another remote server.And i don't have telnet access.
Moreover i don't want to stay connected all the time.
Does anybody know a tool that can be useful to me ??
Any help in this regard would be sincerly appreciated..

ftp it from one server to your workstation, then ftp it back again.

If you have a slow connection it will take a few hours, but if you use a download manager like Getright, you can do it in pieces, and if it drops off you can resume it later.

Hey Matthew,

I happened to come across a site
this site may not be perfect but it does serve the purpose of transfer of data from one server to another. And it is unbelieveably fast.
The main problem with the site is that it does not allow you to access your local Hard Disk.

(Since when is 25-50 megabytes a huge amount of data ;-)

if you're using real FTP clients, you might be able to use the ftp "proxy" command to transfer data directly between the servers.

use ftp as usual to connect to the source machine.

from the ftp command line, use "proxy open hostname" to connect to the second machine (log in as usual).

then use "proxy put filename" to transfer the file.

Try BadBlue (mentioned on TechTV). Creates a searchable, secure web server that is good for sharing video, music and such. I downloaded an 800 meg file with it. Kind of like FTP but the interface is through your browser.
