Default Compressing Files on a Server via FlashFXP?

Not too sure where this belongs, so I apologize if it's in the wrong section. Anyway, I was wondering if FlashFXP is able to RAR/ZIP files directly onto a server. In other words, say I have a directory/folder that has multiple document files and image files. Instead of transferring the directory to my personal machine, archiving and compressing the folder into a single ZIP/RAR file, and then uploading back to the server, is it possible for me to do all that right there on the server to avoid all the other wasted time? If not, is there some other program that you know of that might do that? Thanks in advance!

FTP does not provide such functionality, not flashfxp's limitation..that's why it's called FILE TRANSFER PROTOCOL.
you will need a proper remote access to your server to compress files there such as ssh or rdp.
