I didn't realize that currently we depend on 'url_copy' in the server side
only. In this case, we have to install grid-ftp server in client
But there is a quick solution for this problem in current 'get'
in which we allow client to call 'url_copy' too. So there are two scenarios
in our 'get'.
1. dest_url=ecogrid://..., src_url=ecogrid://
This is a 3rd-party file transfer request from a client. The server
calls 'url_copy' to do the 3rd-party file transfer for client.
The 'get' proxy (in server side) will talk to underneath system to
to actual hostname and physical file path along with filename and send
them back to 'get'
client. Then the 'get' client calls 'url_copy' to get the file. In this
approach, there is no need to require grid-ftp server running in client
machine. But we have to ship the 'url_copy' in our client package.
