Between FTP-DeleGate servers, FTP data is transmitted in "MODE XDC" 
which means transmitting data on the control-connection, without making
data-connections.  This mechanism prevents DeleGate from encountering
problems around data-connection.
This "MODE XDC" is suppressed when two DeleGate servers are on the
same machine, but can be enabled with the FTPCONF="forcexdc" option 
(which seems not documented)
