it's an ftp server problem. and besides there are three hosts here:
two servers with good net connections and one pc with a bad one. at
least that's what i understood the question to be.
so the idea is to tell server A to xfer files to server B. the ftp
protocol does allow for that (you'd have to add the recursive bit
by yourself) but i think a lot of ftp servers disable it for
security reasons. do a man on ftp and look at the proxy command.
