Thank you MxxCon for replying!

I understand how FTP works. All I said was I could not find a good defination about how FXP works.

You mentioned "in order for FXP transfer to work one server MUST support passive connection and other MUST support "active" connection." Does it matter which one is active and which one is passive?

Also you mentioned "if both ftp servers are behind firewall or nat, FXP transfer will not work unless, at least one server will forward it's control connection port (often it's port 21), and it's data connection port range(must be above 1025)."

If I interpret "forword control and data port" as static nat, is that correct?

Thank you!
