Both systems may be used independently without any restrictions. But now transfer jobs may be relayed from MFT to FX as well as from FX to MFT. Therefore, an FX system is added as another storage share in MFT. Thus an MFT job can be turned into an FX download. The other way round, files from an FX upload can be send to any predefined MFT destination (optionally, after a security check).
