FXP

File eXchange Protocol uses FTP to transfer data directly from one remote server to another. This inter-server exchange operates without the data being routed to the client. Whereas normal FTP involves data transfers only between a client and a server, using FXP involves the client using an FTP connection to the two servers to command the data transfer. This can be particularly useful when moving large files, such as video, as it is only the connection between the two servers that needs to be fast; the client’s command operation requires only low bandwidth.
