The ElSimpleSftpClient component has a CopyRemoteFile method to copy remote Files into a remote Directory. So here's my question: is there a similar method in the TElSimpleFTPSClient component?

It would be very useful to have the same functionality for the standard FTP protocol, not only SFTP. I'm using SecureBlackbox 8.0 version.

This is server's function, and in SFTP it appeared in some later version of the protocol (version 5 maybe, I need to check the docs for this). So it's not guaranteed to work on all servers.

And FTP doesn't support such functionality at all (in a standard way). Some servers support extensions, so you can send a command eg. "SITE cp thisfile.ext /that/folder" or something like that. But this depends on the server.
