remote files

P: 4
Hi all, I am quite a beginner in PHP and happens that I have a problem with accessing remote files that gets me frustrated for two weeks now. This site I have running on PHP provide to download video files that is stored in the same server.

Unfortunately, I'm losing space and decided to moved some of the video files to other server. I used ftp_connect as a connection handle and ftp_chdir going to the archive folder. The actual problem is the method for retrieving/ downloading the files. I can use ftp_get but this is unsuitable for large files.

Is it possible to use symbolic link for getting remote files?
What other alternative PHP function I can use for getting remote files?
If there's none, Somebody know third party program I can use here?

Your kindly responses is deeply appreciated.
