is there a way to zip (with aes encryption) a file directly to a ftp and/or sftp server without creating a local zip file?

Only if the zip is not too large to fit in memory. You could call the zip.WriteToMemory method to write the zip file to a byte array (or CkByteData) and then upload directly from that to the FTP and/or SFTP server. Both FTP and SFTP have methods for uploading from a byte array (or CkByteData).

The file could be quite large, so this is not possible. Thanks for the information anyway.
