Please login in first unix server with root user and root have complete authorisation.
# ftp second unix server IP address and login with root
#cd /opt/usr/local
#lcd /opt/htr/local
#mget f1.txt

If system ask something then press y
You can download any file from one server to another server through ftp

Login to the second box using ssh as user RRR and then:
scp xxx@server1:/opt/usr/local/f1.txt  /opt/htr/local
