If I understand the situation correctly you are connecting to the same server on the left and on the right and transferring the file over using "save as" to create a copy of the file, is this correct?

Most likely the FTP server doesn't support site to site transfers and as a result the transfer is failing, A simple solution depending on the situation might be to simply change the Site to site method located in the Site Manager / Transfer Tab from Direct (FXP) to Indirect (protocol independent).

With an Indirect transfer we basically combine the steps of downloading the file and uploading the file into a single action. Where-by the file is downloaded to your computer and then uploaded to the desired server. The temporary file is then deleted upon successful upload.

Otherwise you'll need to look into re-configuring the FTP server software to allow site to site transfers, this requires root access to modify the ftp server conf file.
