I have a need for a GUI client (WinSCP?) which enables host to host transfers wherein the data being transfered does not need to travel from host to PC back to host. Can this be done with WinSCP? If not, does anyone know of a GUI that will allow me to do this?

Thanks.

Currently, users are using Samba and Winblows explorer to drag and drop. There is an impending data center move which will change LAN speed to WAN speed. Thus, I need to eliminate the data trip to the PC and back to the other host.

You have not answered my question. I just wonder, if FTP is acceptable for you. There are some FTP clients allowing host to host transfers (its called FXP).

FTP is not desirable for security reasons but I realize my choices are limited. Thanks for the info on FXP. I'll look into it.
