Re: Transfer a file from a remote to another one

Neither SCP nor SFTP have inherent support for (FXP-like) direct file
transfers between two remote hosts. You always have to SSH into one of
the boxes and initiate the transfer from the remote box by running the
necessary command.

scp nick0@x.x.x.x:file nick1@y.y.y.y:newfile
is equivalent to
ssh nick0@x.x.x.x "scp file nick1@y.y.y.y:newfile"
