Can you also ssh to one of the hosts? Then you will be able to ftp to/from the other.

Once you're logged into an ftp session, you only have a limited set of cmds available; 'ftp' is not one of those.
If you can mount the ftp area onto another system eg via nfs, you could then ftp the content to another system.
If you can mount both ftp areas, then a simple cp should work, I think.

That's a good idea chris ,it should work .Let me try it .
But after mounting the ftp via nfs where will I provide username and password to login there ?

Unfortunately, the ftp server has to nfs export it to make it avail to you; client & server remember

In general, the options are:

1. it can't be done ie ftp -> ftp; you have to download then upload
2. the src is exported via nfs or samba or sshfs and you ftp from there
3. both src & destn are exported and just use cp

If you have nfs/samba on both the servers , then you can mount both the shares on your system and just copy command will work

mount -t cifs //<server1IP>/<share> <absolute_Path_on_local_system> -ousername=<samba_username>,passwd=<samba_password>

this mounts the samba share in your system at location <absolute_Path_on_local_system>

repeat the same for other server also and just do copy between these 2 locations

Hope this helps
