Copy from ftp to ftp ?


I want to change my internet provider, so I have to copy my whole site to another. I am running a CMS (websitebaker) with a lot of files and directories.

For copying the mysql database, I have to choose an other way, ok.
But the file structure I want to copy with an ftp-client, Smartftp.
If I would download the files from my old provider to my WindowsXP Computer and upload it to the new provider, I would loose all the file permissions, becouse Windows cannot store it. If I open 2 remote windows in Smartftp and move a file with drag and drop, it does not work, some errors occures.

How can I copy files without loosing the file permissions?


FTP is not the right tool for this, use SSH / SCP or rsync.
